I am The Blowfish. The Heavy Metal Marine Biologist. Animal Handler and Wildlife Presenter.

I can provide services as a presenter and narrator as well as valued abilities as a scientifically educated researcher. I am fully trained marine biologist and have extensive knowledge in this field of study.

I have a totally unique and inimitable delivery that can take any biological premise and break it down into accurate but easily understood analogies.

Over the years I have developed a wide working knowledge of a full range of creatures including fish, mammals, invertebrates, birds, reptiles and insects. I am an experienced animal handler and can safely say, that I am comfortable working with any creature... so long as it's comfortable working with me!

As a scuba diver with 15 years experience and dual qualifications in BSAC and PADI teaching organisations, being in the water is second nature to me.

My TV experience continues to grow year on year and I am developing a reputation for being accurate, insightful and also a 1 take wonder! No missed time sheets when The Blowfish is around.

Born in the once dusty little town of Hesperia, California the love of nature has always been the central inspiration in my life. From rattlesnakes to cobras, alligators to anacondas, there has never been a "creepy crawly" I haven't immediately wanted to look at just a little closer and show to everyone around. I think it was my passion for sharing my passion that led me to my career in television. What a platform to show the world all the awesome living things around us... and so that's the short version.

I specialize in herpetology (the study of reptiles and amphibians), but have worked with all sorts of animals on and off camera. I've done it all, from hiding in hand built blinds to film wild lions feeding for National Geographic, to scuba diving with massive tiger sharks for the Discovery Channel. Simply put there is no animal too obscure or dangerous for my camera's lens... whether that lens be on a big body Sony 900, a Photron High Speed Camera, a Phantom, a Red Epic, or an underwater rig (yes I am a PADI certified diver). For more on my television work see my IMDB page.

Photography is my favorite form of artistic expression and my photos appear in several books, websites, and magazines. Occasionally I sell my photographs and donate the proceeds to a variety of causes I support. I personally love to snap images of venomous snakes from cobras to bushmasters and everything in between. I have shot production stills for National Geographic, Animal Planet and The Discovery Channel.

I travel to South Africa annually, and have a particular fondness for the herps of that region, occasionally lead small groups so others can share in my experience.

Please contact me if you would be interested in joining me in the field some time in the future.

My original plan for my life was academia, and I still do a bit of research work as well. I have presented at the International Herpetological Symposium, speak at countless reptile societies, and co-authored both scientific papers and non-fictional books.

When I am not searching for snakes or filming I am actively involved in a number of conservation efforts including the founding of Herpetological Conservation International.

Combine nature and adventure photo-journalist + outdoor adventure guide & trainer + ramblings of an Australian environmental scientist = a rough etching of Steve Curtain.

Oh, who can shoot, FCP edit and produce, too.

Grounded by three years as an editor at 'Wild' and 'Rock' magazines - leading Australian nature and climbing publications, see www.wild.com.au - Steve has written, filmed and photographed for 'Australian Geographic', national park agencies and Australian domestic newspapers.

Converting his earliest epic outings into something worthwhile, Steve has been fortunate to professionally guide throughout south-east Australia by ski, foot, raft and rope and in the Antarctic/sub-antarctic courtesy of a Russian ice-strengthened vessel and the occasional Zodiac. He teaches students of all ages especially young adults training to be outdoor educators and guides themselves. Please visit www.stephencurtain.com for more.

Dedicating himself to the study of iconic, magnetic 'green' subjects such as Lake Pedder, the world's only glacio-fluvial lake in Australia's far south - drowned for hydro-electricity in 1972 but now experiencing possible restoration, see here – to the Australian Alps, a little-known but immensely significant ancient landscape to indigenous and non-indigenous Australian alike, see www.vimeo.com/41687607, Steve loves his environmental work and the difference it hopefully makes for a healthy planet for healthy people.

Thanks for reading.

I am a freelance photographer and camera operator looking for any entry level position. Ideally camera assisting work, however I can happily fulfil the role of runner or jr. researcher.

  • I have some professional experience, working at Ammonite as a researcher and camera assistant.
  • I am a zoologist; therefore I can read, interpret, digest and explain complex scientific concepts from primary sources. And thus fulfil the position of a researcher. Furthermore I have done research for both Sky and Ammonite, the former as part of a work experience placement and the latter as part of paid employment.
  • I have very good knowledge of insects and arachnids, with a particular emphasis on ants.
  • I have a master’s degree with distinction from the University of Salford where I learned the basics of wildlife film-making.
  • I produce my own short sequences about wildlife. My aim is to film common, but rarely seen behaviour in order to educate people about invertebrate life around us. I filmed this sequence showing a raft spider laying eggs (a behaviour filmed by me for the first time) received an honourable mention in 2013’s British Wildlife Photographer of the year Awards. I have also made this sequence about mating and courtship in the common daddy longlegs. I am currently in the process of finishing off two more films on orb spiders and water boatmen.
  • I also shoot stills.

Rupert is an ex-British soldier who now runs HASP Training Ltd, a company that trains media and professionals to operate safely in areas where their very presence puts them at risk.

When it comes to hostile environment training, freelancers often get a raw deal as they have to cough up for a course which is often £2.5K and more, or they don't get considered for the work. HASP aims to redress that balance and offer shorter, better thought out, more specific and tailored courses that don't involve a 6 night stay, and are much cheaper.

Rupert and the HASP teams' approach is "Prepare Not Scare", he has taught on BBC courses in Pakistan, India, the US and Kenya and you can now join him on a course in Surrey or he can come to your offices.

Octavia is not what you’d call your traditional natural history presenter - in an attempt to get ‘up-close and personal’ with nature, she likes to couple her deep-rooted passion for the natural world with a love for adventure and outdoor pursuits. As a qualified rock climbing instructor, mountaineer, PADI Divemaster, horse rider, powerboat driver and bush craft leader, Octavia loves anything that allows her to explore the outdoors.

It’s not all about adrenaline sports though, as Octavia is also a passionate advocator of conservation, particularly on our home turf here on the British Isles. With a degree in Environmental Science and having previously worked as an Environmental Consultant, Octavia has a profound knowledge of British wildlife and ecosystems and has worked at some of the UK’s most exciting conservation sites: monitoring Bottlenose dolphins on the Welsh coast with the CBMWC, preserving the salt flats at RSPB Ynys-hir and Red Kites at Bwlch Nant-yr-Arian and more recently at the Whixall Moss National Nature Reserve with the Shropshire Wildlife Trust.

Having presented at live events such as the Bristol Festival of Nature and at Merefest 2016, Octavia is completely at ease under pressure. Furthermore, in addition to television and radio presenting, She’s also produced and presented a variety of short online films about wildlife and the countryside and has previously worked as a researcher on programs such as BBC Science’s Wonders of Life and Bang Goes the Theory and enjoys getting into the nitty gritty bits of science!

With her enthusiasm for wildlife, and a boundless on-screen energy, Octavia is always keen to try new challenges, and along the way, educate and inspire people about the amazing planet we live on.
