Wildlife filmmaker and photographer Bertie Gregory has channeled his childhood obsession with wildlife into photography. Photos from this obsession earned him recognition early on in his career, including been named a National Geographic Young Explorer, Youth Outdoor Photographer of the Year, and Zenith Scientific Exploration Society Explorer. After graduating with a zoology degree from the University of Bristol in 2014, he began assisting legendary big cat photographer Steve Winter on assignment for National Geographic. Bertie has since shot television shows for Nat Geo WILD (Mumbai's urban leopards and caiman hunting jaguars), as well as for BBC's Planet Earth. Gregory's first solo assignment for National Geographic—tracking and filming the illusive coastal wolf on the west coast of Vancouver Island, Canada—became Nat Geo WILD’s first digital series, wild_life. All this before his 24th birthday. Bertie recently worked on a new National Geographic digital series based in South Georgia.
