I'm Sam Rowley, a BBC NHU wildlife filmmaker, Bristol University biology graduate and 'that mouse photo' guy.
For as long as I can remember, I've been lucky enough to have a fascination with the natural world. Growing up, I quickly learned that the best way to share this passion with others was to steal my Dad's camera and go and photograph wildlife around my London home. This developed into a semi-professional hobby specialising in urban wildlife, taking me all around the world photographing everything from city hyenas in Ethiopia, to iguanas crossing roads in the Galapagos Islands. But, it’s still London where my most popular imagery has originated from.
At University, I picked up filmmaking - another tool for me to share my enthusiasm with the masses. This journey has enabled me to have had some extraordinary experiences with wildlife all over the world, and has culminated in my dream job currently working at the BBC Natural History Unit as a researcher, camera assistant and drone pilot. For a list of my credits, see my Talent Manager profile below.
My work is most well-known from my photograph of two mice scrapping on a London station platform. The image won the Wildlife Photographer of the Year's People's Choice award, a competition I've been fortunate enough to feature in multiple times, and has been seen by millions worldwide. I'm still pinching myself.
