I am a wildlife filmmaker and environmentalist based in Bristol.
With an unconventional background in drama I have a unique perspective on telling stories of the Natural World, and I am passionate about bringing the most important stories about wildlife and the environment to homes across the world.
Trained as a South African Field Guide, and with a Masters in Wildlife Filmmaking from the University of the West of England, I am currently working in Bristol and the South West.
"Ida is a great Researcher with an extensive knowledge of wildlife, and an ability to turn her hand to anything. She worked with me for a year on The One Show, and was a great asset to the team. She can find interesting and compelling stories, can write wonderful pitches/scripts, is able to set up quite complicated shoots, and has been a quick learner when required to do sound. On shoots, she is helpful and always one step ahead of the PD. I would gladly have Ida working with me again."
