Snarl For The Camera: Tales of a wildlife cameraman

James Gray

1 Reviews

Rated 0

Biography: general, Prose: non-fiction

This fascinating and delightfully funny book will appeal to everyone who loves wildlife - and has always wondered how wildlife television programmes get made.

Snarl for the Camera is a book about animals, and the filming of animals. During his many years as a leading wildlife cameraman, James Gray has filmed everything from human lice (which he had to feed on his own blood) to elephants in Thailand, polar bears in the Arctic, anacondas in Venezuela, mountain gorillas in Uganda, and golden monkeys and pandas in China. In a series of entertaining and informative stories, the author describes his (sometimes very scary) experiences filming wild animals - like the time he found he'd parked himself right on top of a polar bear's den...

James reveals the eye-opening truth behind the making of nature programmes: keeping television producers happy requires not only an inordinate amount of patience and perseverance - wading through swamps or squatting in trees for days on end - but may also require giving nature a helping hand.
