"For me, one of the really important things with storytelling is hope," says wildlife filmmaker and self-shooting director Nina Constable. "We are living in a time when there are lots of stories of destruction or devastation, so inspirational people and habitats or species that are being restored are things I'm looking for."
While wildlife filmmaking is often associated with huge telephoto lenses and large rigs, Nina has built a successful career documenting wildlife and nature for the likes of the BBC, Sky and WWF, using first Canon DSLRs, then Cinema EOS cameras – and, most recently, the compact Canon EOS C70.
"As I'm working almost entirely independently, having lightweight kit that's easy to manage myself, while not compromising on image quality, is a key consideration," Nina says. "I have to carry all of my own gear, and I need to be able to move around a lot. The EOS C70 has blown my mind."
Here, Nina shares her journey into the world of wildlife filmmaking and the gear that allows her to always get the shot.
