Hi,
I've been working as a camera operator and assistant for well on 7 years. lately I have been going on retreats into the slightly more wild side of Africa, as i love being in the bush and I really want to end up filming wildlife.

If there is one thing I have learnt, it is that working with or for experienced people is by far the best way to become happy with your own work. it is to this end that I am trying to get into contact with DOP's or producers who busy themselves with wildlife shoots.
Honestly, it's been a struggle, and few people have been able to give me actual advice in this matter.

Is there anyone here who can help or has the time to listen to my plea?
any help, advice or feedback would be greatly appreciated.

My goal, for now, is to become an assistant to a DOP, so i can learn how to film wildlife in the right way.
