Jerry Short’s conservation programmes for BBC strands such as Saving Planet Earth have won international awards.

Inspired by his deep love of the natural world and driven by a bottomless enthusiasm for top quality wildlife documentary work, Jerry honed his skills as a travel and wildlife photographer before teaming up with the BBC’s prestigious Natural History Unit for an 11 year career that has spanned the globe and expanded minds worldwide.

He has traversed oceans and continents directing presenters such as Michaela Strachan, Nick Baker and Steve Backshall, before moving on to make programmes with such iconic presenters as Sir David Attenborough and producing programmes for Animal Planet and Discovery Channel.

Jerry Short met Andy Luck in his early days at the BBC, when they worked together on an environmental series, Natural Trax, which won international acclaim with an award at Missoula International Wildlife Film Festival. This was the first of many programmes that they made together and an auspicious start to a highly productive partnership.

Solomon’s Ring -  Jerry Short has the rapport with wildlife and people that is fundamentally necessary to bridge the two worlds and make them one.

The quality speaks for itself.
