Paul Maury Nature & Bird Guide, Cinematographer
Paul Maury Natural History & Bird Guide @paulmauryphotography
Growing up in the South of France Paul was fascinated by nature, spending hours in the nearby countryside searching for birds. Given his first pair of binoculars at age 8, by age 12 he purchased a first spotting scope, attached a compact camera and discovered photography. Paul gained technical skills in film studying colour science and cinematography. Combining a technical skill set with a life long passion he became extremely efficient in tracking, observing and recording rare wildlife, especially birds and has been fortunate enough to work on a string of major natural history productions around the world. Alongside documentaries, he works as a freelance cinematographer, photographer and guide. He recently completed the grand loop of Australia and recorded more than 600 bird species. He also travelled and recorded wildlife extensively throughout Southeast Asia, Pacific, Africa and Europe.
