Speaker Bio

Ted is a self shooting director and editor, working across commercial and documentary. His main interests lie in exploring stories of human connection to wild land and wild spaces. 

Ted’s style has been described as cinematic yet personal, with an ability as a self shooter to capture authentic moments in hostile environments and difficult conditions.

Ted’s feature debut came in 2020 with ‘The Cull – Scotland’s Deer Dilemma’, and found a passion and a talent for working within a longer format. This film allowed Ted to combine breathtaking cinematic capture of the incredible Highland vistas with intimate and personal characters, authentically representing all sides of the debate, and weaving a complex narrative throughout a compelling feature documentary. 

‘The Cull’ is on the international festival circuit, and has been critically acclaimed, winning ‘Best Natural History & Mountain Environment Film’ at the world renowned Banff Mountain Film Festival, and ‘Best Environmental Film’ at Kendal Mountain Festival.
