Pearl diver, SCUBA instructor, Antarctic marine biologist, photographer, writer, award winning documentary cameraman, Doug Allan has been filming underwater in the world’s wildest places for 45 years. His images have been published in numerous magazines and books, and he’s contributed memorable sequences to classic BBC series like The Blue Planet, Planet Earth, Frozen Planet, Ocean Giants, Forces of Nature and many others.
Can you really talk to Belugas? Or make sure you don't lose that important dive hole when you’re filming seals under the ice? What’s harder – handling a camera underwater at minus 1.8o C or in a 3knot current? How about both at the same time?
Doug's presentation Eye Below the Ice talks about his 40 years of experience of diving and filming in both the Arctic and Antarctic. He has witnessed first hand how climate change is affecting both poles. Is there still time to turn the tide?
