Doug Allan is best-known for his work in cold, remote places on BBC wildlife and expedition series such as Blue Planet, Planet Earth, and Frozen Planet. He’s also the author of Freeze Frame, a collection of his images and reflections from the Poles.
Here he describes highlights from his 35-year career filming wildlife: diving under the ice with Weddell seals, making friends with whales, and NOT being eaten by polar bears. With a wealth of stories and pictures from behind the scenes, the cameraman examines the animals that live in the wildest places on earth.
‘For me, wildlife cameramen don’t come much more special than Doug. There’s just no one else who knows these frozen worlds as he does.’ Sir David Attenborough
