Hi, I'm Katie Stacey - writer, camerawoman, nature enthusiast and conservation ambassador. I am one half of Sunbittern Media - a travel and nature focused media company who work all over the world creating quality multimedia packages for our clients.
How it all began...
After quitting my job in the city in 2012 I've been a bit of a nomad - running a ski chalet in Morzine, France. Teaching scuba diving in Roatan, Honduras. Managing a Bushcamp in the Luangwa Valley, Zambia…and that’s when things got really interesting!
It was in Zambia that I wrote my first book and met wildlife photographer and cameraman Luke Massey. Since then I have been signed by A For Authors, and I’ve started working full time as Luke’s camera assistant and writer.
Our work together started in 2015 when we documented a rather unique urban peregrine pair in Chicago, and from there we moved to Spain to follow the elusive Iberian lynx with the support of Wildscreen Exchange.
2016 began with trips to India to photograph the black kites of Delhi and Indonesia to investigate the illegal wildlife trade, before returning to Chicago to film a Natural World for the BBC on our favourite peregrine pair!
After that we headed to Australia with Leica Optics to film an urban birding mini-film, to Zambia to film the launch of the Panasonic Lumix G80, to Cyprus to cover the illegal bird trapping with Chris Packham and finished the year in Singapore doing a story on urban otters.
2017 started in Poland exploring the rapidly disappearing Bialowieza forest and meeting the iconic European Bison that call it home, to Vienna to watch a bearded vulture chick hatch, to Thailand to film an episode for BBC3's new series 'Undercover Tourist', to the Cayman Islands birding with Leica optics and finally we spent a summer in Nicaragua running a ranch, followed by two months exploring Panama and Brazil. Most recently I've been writing for Dive Global about my top ten favourite dive sites in the world.
2018 will see the official launch of Sunbittern Media so stay tuned for that.
There are lots more exciting projects coming up soon so follow @naturenibbles on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram to keep up to date!
