With tourism and adventure becoming more popular and accessible, the production industry has created many programmes designed to showcase the great outdoors, both at home and overseas.
Getting the camera into the best possible position can sometimes mean abseiling off a cliff or paddling up-stream. We will help you achieve this whilst ensuring that your crew and camera are safely positioned for the shots you want, as well as providing advice, if required, about the environment and equipment.
Some of our more memorable work has included aiding film crews and photographers in the creation of programmes such as ITV’s Adventurer’s Guide to Britain, Famous & Fearless, Teachers’ TV, BBC News, and BBC Breakfast. Technical Outdoor Solutions also provided safety cover for the photo shoot for the Petzl 2013 catalogue.
We have created Zip Wires across Hodge Close in the Lake District, taken Gethin Jones wild swimming, Charlotte Uhlenbroek canoeing on Ullswater and Matt Baker up Helvellyn. Craig Palmer, Managing Director, also has experience in front of the camera, offering both technical advice and environmental information.
