Roger was one of the principal cameramen on the BBC’s Blue Planet II series. He is a British, Emmy and BAFTA award-winning underwater cameraman, based in Sabah, Malaysia.
Specialising in Natural history and documentary film-making, Roger logged over 600hrs underwater on the Blue Planet II series while filming ten different stories across four episodes. You can read more about that on Roger’s Blue Planet II blog. An underwater cameraman since 2001 Roger has experience working in diverse locations and habitats from the Antarctic to the tropics, open ocean to coral reefs. While enjoying the challenge of filming megafauna, such as manta rays and blue whales, his specialty is crafting complex, character-led stories. Notable sequences include ‘Percy the Tuskfish’ smashing clams on an anvil for Blue Planet II, the first filming of the humpback whale heat-run in Tonga for One Life and a brutally enthralling turtle mating sequence for David Attenborough’s Life Story. Roger is an excellent freediver and also dives a rEvo closed circuit rebreather. He owns and operates an 8K Red DSMC2 Helium cinema camera housed in a Gates Deep Weapon underwater housing and has worked extensively with lighting and grip underwater.
