About Me

Roger is a British, Emmy award-winning underwater cameraman, based in Sabah, Malaysia and the UK.  

Specialising in Natural history and documentary film-making, Roger was one of the principal cameramen on the BBC’s recent Blue Planet II series. He logged over 600hrs underwater on the series while filming ten different stories across four episodes. An underwater cameraman since 2001 Roger has experience working in diverse locations and habitats from the Antarctic to the tropics, open ocean to coral reefs. While enjoying the challenge of filming megafauna, such as manta rays and blue whales, his specialty is crafting complex, character-led stories. Notable sequences include the first filming of the humpback whale heat-run in Tonga for One Life and a brutally enthralling turtle mating sequence for David Attenborough’s Life Story. Roger is an experienced freediver and also dives a rEvo closed circuit rebreather. He owns and operates an 8K Red Epic-W cinema camera in a Gates Deep Weapon Housing and has worked extensively with lighting and grip underwater.
