Simon started out as a self-taught wildlife photographer, but moved into video in 2012, aiming to fulfil a long-held dream of becoming a professional wildlife / conservation cameraman. He was based in southern Spain from 2003- 2015, which enabled him to concentrate his efforts and hone his camera operating skills as he made the switch to filming. He spent long periods climbing, and filming birds of prey, especially Eurasian griffon vultures and Bonelli’s eagles. He was fortunate enough to locate and film for a short period at the nest site of a pair of endangered Spanish imperial eagles where 3 chicks were raised and fledged successfully. In the summer of 2015, Simon spent almost four months locating and filming the Iberian lynx (Lynx pardel), the world’s rarest wild cat.
More recently he has spent time filming Patagonian pumas in Chile, and otters in Devon.
