Vanessa & Mark first connected with Aled in 2007 when he was the Chief Executive of Cineflex Camera Systems LLC based in California. Using the system throughout both ‘Planet Earth’ and ‘Frozen Planet’, the BBC changed the dynamic of aerial natural history filming.

He also serves on the board of the National Conservatoire of Wales under the patronage of H.R.H. the Prince of Wales and is a member of the ‘Elephant Action Network’, led by Chelsea & President Clinton to prevent the needless slaughter of Elephants at the hands of the Ivory Trade.
