Editorial Reviews

Review

An enlightening glimpse beyond the lens.―TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

Gavin's book is extraordinary: his easy prose and gasp-making encounters make for a gripping and very funny read. It's a rollercoaster ride with a complete professional. I loved it.―Joanna Lumley

Gavin Thurston's book has all sorts of strengths. His camera has captured some of the most eye-catching images of the natural world ever seen on television. And he can write. He brings the process home to us in a style that is modest, down to earth and full of humour. This is one of the best books about filming I've ever read. Michael Palin

This is an absorbing account of a fascinating career.―BBC WILDLIFE MAGAZINE

His no-holds-barred memoir plunges you into the serendipities and perils of working in the remote wilderness, as he stands stock-still to 'hide' from short-sighted African elephants in Kenya, films demoiselle cranes flying 6 kilometres up above Nepal, or marvels at the hiss of Mauritania's dryland crocodiles.―Barbara Kiser, NATURE

[Gavin is] a great cameraman with infinite patience, but also a writer with great powers of observation and expression. Brilliant!―Alan Titchmarsh

About the Author

Gavin Thurston is an award-winning cameraman specialising in wildlife. He has worked on 17 of Sir David Attenborough's series and has travelled and filmed on all seven continents and at both North and South poles. Recently, whilst filming for Blue Planet 2 he was in the submersible that set the world record for deepest dive in Antarctica. He has survived charging elephants, being hunted by lions, close encounters with a grizzly bear mum, wild wolves, plane crashes, civil wars, and coups. And once, whilst filming for a BBC special on Gorillas, he was slapped by a silverback.

Gavin has won numerous awards including 5 EMMYs, 3 BAFTAs and a Royal Humane Society Award for Bravery.
