Greg Armfield's biography

Greg Armfield – photo and film team

Greg Armfield – photo and film team:

Like many of my colleagues here I grew up fascinated by the natural world. From an early age I’ve also been equally obsessed with capturing its many marvels on film. I never found growing up in an urban environment (in south London) a major hindrance to my passion – it just meant I had to search that bit harder. And the rewards, when they came, meant that much more.

Although I studied history at Aberystwyth University, photography and nature have always been my real passions – and after two years spent travelling around the world I decided to try to make them my profession. Now 12 years on, I’m in my dream job at WWF-UK, managing our imagery and video, helping spread the message about the need to protect our beautiful, precious planet.

As for my blog posts – I’m not big on words, so expect imagery and video to dominate. You can’t ask for more!

Rhinos lend an ear in the fight against illegal wildlife trade

After a long flight, with my traditional seating position of legs around my head – did I mention before I’m tall? – I finally arrived in Nairobi. One thing certainly never changes in Nairobi – traffic. It always surprises me that anyone actually ever makes it to their destination, but make it they do. Cars […]
