FILMMAKER | BIOLOGIST | PHOTOGRAPHER | ARTIST
Documenting conservation, environment and science stories.
Hi, my name is Katie Garrett and I love telling stories with my camera. I also really like frogs and snakes.
I am a director and producer of natural history films that combine intimate close-up cinematography with personal stories from people living and working alongside nature. I have produced film pieces for National Geographic, Science Friday (NPR), Geographical Magazine (Royal Geographical Society), bioGraphic (California Academy of Sciences), and Ensia.
I studied Natural Sciences at Durham University and went on to work as a research assistant at The Natural History Museum in London (some things I did there include editing a book on Snakes, and finding new frogs in Cameroon). I began filming while travelling with my brother and in 2012 we established a video production partnership - Garrett and Garrett. Since then I have been pursuing my passion of communication science and appreciation of the natural world, with a particular focus on reptiles and amphibians. I also spend some of my time trying to help the wonderful people at HARCC save frogs from extinction.
