John Waters



I have lived in Somerset since 1993. After obtaining a Biology degree I worked for 5 years with English Nature before embarking upon a freelance career in TV – mostly on wildlife films.

I have worked on many of the David Attenborough series for the BBC such as ‘The Private Life of Plants’, ‘The Life of Birds’ and ‘Planet Earth’ as well as programmes for ‘Wildlife on One’ and ‘The Natural World’

I also filmed two series of ‘Meerkat Manor’ for which I received an Emmy Nomination for Cinematography.

My spare time is mostly devoted to landscape photography – we are blessed here with so many different landscapes – and I try to capture that timeless quality that makes Somerset so special.
