One Shot artist: Bertie Gregory

Bertie Gregory is a 25-year-old wildlife filmmaker and presenter of National Geographic’s first digital wildlife series. He has been completely obsessed with wildlife since a young age. At just 12-years-old, Bertie got ahold of his father’s camera and began sneaking off to photograph his local wildlife. From that moment, he was hooked. Over the following years, this obsession earned him the titles of Youth Outdoor Photographer Of The Year, 2020 VISION Young Champion and a youth nomination at the Wildscreen Panda Awards. In 2012, Bertie graduated from the University of Bristol with a first class honours degree in Zoology. The day after graduation, he boarded a plane to begin photo assisting his mentor and renowned National Geographic photographer Steve Winter on a leopard assignment for National Geographic Magazine. Following this baptism of fire, the project developed so that Bertie would shoot a television special, ‘Leopards at the Door’. His latest project with Winter, Jaguar vs. Croc, premiered last December during Nat Geo WILD’s eighth-annual Big Cat Week. Whilst working for Winter, Bertie was named a National Geographic Young Explorer for an expedition to track down and film the elusive coastal wolf on the west coast of Vancouver Island, Canada. This three-month adventure on British Columbia coast became Wild_Life, Bertie’s first solo project for National Geographic. A 16-part series that broadcast across National Geographic’s social media platforms receiving over 40 million views. Since then he was awarded the prestigious BBC Natural History Unit camera bursary, filming non-stop for the last 18-months on the BBC’s next landmark series, Seven Worlds. Bertie is currently working on Season 2 of National Geographic’s Wild_Life.
