Main Event: Peter Scoones

It is hard to know where to begin describing Peter's career. He has been a videographer on 'The Blue Planet', 'Planet Earth', 'Life in the Freezer'.... the list goes on.

Peter will talk about using and developing underwater broadcast video equipment from the first Live outside broadcast to 'The Blue Planet' and will include the amazing High Definition technique for 'Planet Earth' and 'Galapagos'.

Starting underwater photography with the RAF in Singapore, his first film 'Breathless moments' won the premier award at the 1st Brighton International Film Festival.

Peter has won countless awards and accolades including the coveted Palm D'or at Antibes three times and two Emmys for Photography for 'The Blue Planet' and 'Great White Shark' which he filmed for the BBC and National Geographic.

Peter was also co-founder of BSoUP in 1967 with Colin Doeg and still attends meetings regularly when filming allows. We are really excited to be seeing him on Wednesday and do hope those of you who can will be able to come along.
