'The Secret Life of a Cameraman' is the sub-title of this book with a foreword by Sir David Attenborough. Gavin Thurston is the award-winning Blue Planet II and Planet Earth II cameraman who tells the extraordinary and adventurous true stories of what it takes to track down and film our planet's most captivating features. A wildlife photographer for over 30 years, and set against the backdrop of modern world history, Gavin had lurked in the shadows of some of the world's remotest places in order to capture footage of the animal kingdom's finest - prides of lions, silverback gorillas, capuchin monkeys, brown bears, grey whales, penguins, mosquitos. From journeys to the deepest depths of the Antarctic Ocean and the wide expanse of the Saharan Deserts, to the peaks of the Himalayas and the wild forests of the Congo, his experiences describe much more than just the incredible array of animals he has filmed. Full of heart-warming and heart-breaking stories, modest, down to earth and full of humour, Gavin invites us to come inside his hidden world and discover the hours spent patiently waiting for the protagonist to appear; the inevitable dangers in the wings and challenges faced and overcome; and the life-affirming moments the cameras miss as well as capture. With a small selection of colour and other photos, diary-like entries, you will be absorbed. 427pp, paperback.
