This week sees the first episodes of 'Big Week at the Zoo'. The new channel 5 series that takes an in depth look at British Zoos and all they do for conservation. I was asked to tag along with the channel 5 team to shoot complimentary stills to the motion footage. It was a blast! Working with the marvellous Helen Skelton we wandered the zoo working in glorious tandem with the motion team and occasionally stealing Helen away to get a few additional images that I needed.
Helen happily mingled with the crowds, delighted keepers, side stepped peckish penguins and worked to make sure each team got what they needed. The entire crew were a dream to work with and that makes getting my job done, a walk in the zoo.
Tune in to Big Week at the Zoo, Channel 5 (UK) Starts Monday 20th at 8pm.
