'I have worked with Gavin on and off for over 30 years. He is, as his diary entries reveal, a most knowledgeable and perceptive naturalist. He has endless patience and that invaluable and extraordinary ability to anticipate what an animal is about to do before he does it, so that the camera is immediately ready to follow it. But now I realise he has one talent I had not previously suspected. He is a vivid writer with an ability to describe scenes with great economy and unflinching accuracy.'  Sir David Attenborough in the foreword to Journeys in the Wild.

Award-winning wildlife cameraman, Gavin Thurston, has worked on 17 of Sir David Attenborough's series including Blue Planet II and Planet Earth II. During his 30 year career he has been charged by elephants, hunted by lions, and set the world record for the deepest dive in Antarctica. He's even been slapped on the back by a silverback gorilla. From the peaks of the Himalayas to the Congo forests, he explains what it takes to track down, and film, the animal kingdom's finest.
