Extract from the foreword by Neil Nightingale, Creative Director, BBC Earth:
If you’re considering working in any kind of wildlife media this book is a brilliant guide to help navigate and understand the confusion of choice and opportunity. But it’s much more than that. It provides an engaging account of the whole industry in its many forms. Even those who’ve spent a lifetime working in this business will discover aspects of it they were barely aware of. I certainly did.
