Featured Videographer | Sophy Crane
Having grown up in rural Devon on a working organic farm, Sophy was surrounded by animals from a young age. Her passion grew when she began studying biology at the University of Sheffield, and her interest in media developed when her cohort became the first to be offered a science communication module, specifically getting science into film. From then on Sophy followed her passion for producing science and conservation documentaries, and in underwater cinematography. Starting out using the lowly GoPro, she began documenting her travels and dive trips both abroad and locally!
Now she works by producing, researching and shooting natural history and environmental content for both large TV broadcasters (Discovery, National Geographic, and local Australian channels), as well as shooting and producing original content for large social media and news publishers such as 60 Second Docs, In The Know, and Yahoo News. Recently she had the pleasure of working as the underwater camera for Bondi Rescue Season 16, which involved filming from a jet ski in 5ft swells surrounded by bluebottle jellyfish and directing/producing and filming the lifeguards underwater for a marine life special!
She shoots with a Sony A6500 and Fantasea housing, and underwater assists well-known cinematographers with Gates and Nauticam housings and Red cameras.
