COLD PLACES – Adventures of a wildlife photographer and why the Emperor is the Perfect Penguin!

Exclusively brought to you by Gary, he has long been in awe of the work of Sue, and is truly honoured to be working with her on this Project and going forward.

Beamed direct into your homes via the zoom video conferencing platform, there is no easier way to sit in the comfort of your home to watch and listen to one of the worlds most respected and well known Wildlife Photographers.

Sue Flood is a professional and award-winning wildlife photographer, filmmaker and author, who spent 11 years with the world-renowned BBC Natural History Unit in Bristol.

Sue was born in St Asaph, and went to school in North Wales and Chester. After reading Zoology at Durham University, Sue fulfilled a lifelong ambition to work with her childhood (and adulthood!) hero, Sir David Attenborough on a number of series, including The Blue Planet,  Planet Earth and the Disneynature movie Earth. Sue also produced a number of wildlife documentaries for the BBC including Polar Bears on Thin Ice, A Boy Among Polar Bears, and Killer Whale.  She left the BBC in 2005 to concentrate on her photography full time.

Sue’s adventures have taken her from camping at -40C with Inuit hunters in the Arctic, working on Russian icebreakers on trips to the North Pole, and swimming with leopard seals in the Antarctic, over the last 20 years working in the polar regions. Her most recent polar trip found her camping for 5 weeks on the Ronne Ice Shelf in the Weddell Sea, photographing for her new book “Emperor – the Perfect Penguin”, with a foreword by Michael Palin. Her talk will cover some of her experiences during the making of the book.

As well as having produced documentaries for the BBC and others, Sue has also appeared on screen, including the National Geographic series “Cameramen who dare”, where the very close encounter she had whilst filming a humpback whale in Tonga was featured.

Sue is passionate about the use of still and moving images to engage people’s interest in the natural world.  Recognition of Sue’s work includes awards in the following competitions: International Garden Photographer of the Year, Travel Photographer of the Year, International Photographer of the Year, the Art Wolfe (Best of Festival) Award in the International Conservation Photography Awards and Royal Photographic Society Silver Medal.  Her work has featured in National Geographic, BBC Wildlife and the numerous other magazines. He career highlight was to be invited to meet Her Majesty the Queen, at Buckingham Palace as a result of her photography.

Sue lives with her husband Chris Graham in North Wales, though she is usually to be found in some far-flung location.
