John Waters, wildlife and documentary cameraman

I am an award-winning wildlife and documentary cameraman, familiar with a wide variety of filming styles and equipment. I have credits on over 60 films, many of which have won awards at festivals – including Wildscreen. In 2008 I received an Emmy nomination for Cinematography for Meerkat Manor.

I currently own a Sony FS7 kit plus A7S Mk. II – both 4K capable – which I use with my Canon lenses.

My spare time is devoted to stills photography, specialising in atmospheric landscapes of my home county of Somerset. There are regular exhibitions of my work and I produce a range of greeting cards now available in 15 outlets across the region. Prints and cards can be ordered via the Shop page.
