Hi all, 


The BBC have given me permission to share the following video online, which was shot by notable nature cameraman Richard TaylorJones for BBC Springwatch Extra last year, which was broadcast last summer.


I had been doing PSC stuff for the programme as well as some TriCaster work on the Red Button show, but had been given some Steadicam shots to do after a few of the other crew told a producer who I was! (It helped that I'd taught a couple of them on the National Film & TV School Steadicam course the previous year...!)


So I was just practicing with the camera setup they wanted in the production village when this happened...

Hope I got everything right - I was put rather on the spot!!
