Gail Jenkinson


Bases in Bristol and London.

Gail is an experienced camera operator specializing in documentary, natural history and adventure filming.

Her work has taken her around the globe from remote deserts and mountainous regions where conditions have been challenging:  Nile, the Ultimate River for Terra Mater Factual and Among the Apes for Dragonfly. To high tech and heavily populated 1st and 3rd world cities to film fast paced human story sequences: Engineering the Impossible for Atlantic Productions and Atlas 4D for Darlow Smithson Productions.

An HSE qualified underwater film maker, Gail has worked on productions that range from the Ron Howard Warner Brothers feature The Heart of the Sea to Earth’s Wildest Waters, The Big Fish (BBC) and River Monsters for Icon Films.

Gail has experience on a wide array of broadcast cameras and filming techniques, using specialist technology including: the MoVi stabilisation system, Octocoptor for aerials flying Alexa Mini and Red, high speed phantom and thermal imaging cameras. Having come up through the ranks from clapper loader in Drama/Features, she’s very content working on a large film set but admits to enjoying working in more extreme locations. Combining technical expertise with creativity Gail has produced sequences for programming on the BBC, National Geographic, Discovery and Sky.
