Capturing the essence of adventure in more than 60 extreme films has taken Emmy award winning cameraman and filmmaker, Keith Partridge, to some of the world’s most hostile and spectacular environments from deep within the bowels of the earth on caving expeditions, through unchartered forests to the summit of Everest. His work includes documentary feature films such as Joe Simpson’s story Touching the Void (BAFTA Best British Film), the BBC’s Human Planet series (EMMY Award for Cinematography)
and epic adventure series Steve Backshall’s Extreme Mountain Challenge in Venezuela for which he was awarded the Guild of Television Cameramen’s Award for Excellence. Recently he has been on expeditions to the Arctic, the Himalaya and was filming in the Alps last Winter. For over 25 years Keith has been pushing the limits of extreme filmmaking. Productions in which he’s been involved have won dozens of international film awards, two BAFTAs and an international Emmy. His international award-winning book The Adventure Game, charting his experiences in filming at the ends of the Earth, was published in June 2015.
