BBC – Alaska Live

Role: Director of Photography / One Man Band – Ben Hamilton


Network: BBC


Ben teamed up with bear guide Dan Kirkwood in Juneau to track bears in the alpine and see what they are doing before the bears arrive.  The team was stuck in weather until the last day when they helicoptered their gear out and decided to hike with one last hope to see bears.  Ultimately they captured two bears fighting and got to witness one of the most unique bear behaviors seen in the wild.  This will be part of a live broadcast (Alaska – Live) in July and will air on both PBS and BBC.
