Robert Hollingworth

Director of Photography
Robert is a three time BAFTA-nominated Director of Photography working in natural history and science films. Experienced in the highly technical aspects of filmmaking he is often working with cutting technology and has helped pioneer new techniques bringing natural history to new audiences on a variety of platforms.

Robert finds Virtual Reality one of the most exciting and rapidly developing fields of filmmaking. The immersive aspect of the medium allows an individual to explore their own path, and create their own story, enabling shared experiences between filmmaker and audience. It’s a powerful educational tool and Robert finds it exciting to be able to share his own passion and adventures with others 'first hand'.

Working with the latest technology in a rapidly developing field he has been lucky enough to capture virtual reality footage across the globe. 

His passion for natural history has seen him dive beneath the waves, and fly to the top of volcanoes and scale skyscrapers, in a bid to capture the natural environment in all its wonder with a broad range of new camera systems.
