ABOUT LEANDER WARD

Leander co-directed, produced and filmed The Crimson Wing - Mystery of the Flamingos, a visually stunning look at life and death for the flamingos of Tanzania’s Lake Natron. As the 2009 premiere release of the new documentary feature strand, Disneynature, it garnered glowing press reviews and collected awards at both The Jackson Hole and Wildscreen wildlife film festivals and at the International Festival of Music and Cinema in Auxerre, France.

With 20 years experience on productions for Disney, National Geographic, and the BBC, as well as a range of branded content for clients including the Natural History Museum, Leobo Private Reserve and Above Magazine, Leander’s creative choices with a camera, in the editing room or in a music studio recording a score demonstrate a distinctive personal sense of drama and appeal. Leander graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts (1994) and makes his home in Somerset, England with his wife Laura and their two daughters.

We have an exciting new film project that’s just kicking off. Just completed the first part of training for it - learning how to snow kite. Will be an epic journey but very long and extremely cold. And I’ve still got to work out how to film it. Watch this space.

Yesterday morning I got up at stupid o’clock to film and photograph a client’s wild flower meadow as part of a bigger project for them. Such a beautiful place to be just after dawn.

I’ve been filming and photographing a magnificent private estate in Oxfordshire this week. Here is a nice sunset view of the pool through one of the walled garden’s gothic arches. All that is needed is the sound of a mosque’s call to prayer and *presto* I’m back travelling in the land of far, far away again…✨
