My inbox receives a constant stream of requests by passionate students seeking advice on how to excel in a career of marine biology and/or wildlife filmmaking. It is humbling that so many enthusiasts seek a career that will allow them to make their contribution to understanding and conserving earths wildlife. If you are on this path, then my biggest recommendation, apart from studying hard at university, would be to gain as much real world experience as possible (learning how to change spark plugs, spending time on the ocean etc.). If you are at this stage, then I would invite you to join my team as member of one of our ongoing internship programs. Each of my partner companies (Oceans Research,Blue Wilderness and Africa Media) run select internship, volunteer, training programs) Determine your passion and realise your dreams!
