Doug Allan spent eight years in Antarctica as a research diver, scientist and photographer for the British Antarctic Survey, before changing direction to full time filming in 1984.  He specialises in natural history, expeditions and science documentaries in some of the wildest and most remote places on our planet, particularly the polar zones.   Over his career, he's filmed for series like The Blue Planet, Planet Earth, Frozen Planet, Ocean Giants, Operation Iceberg and Forces of Nature, as well as making programmes for the Living Oceans Foundation about coral reef conservation and overfishing.

Doug’s photographic awards include eight Emmys and five BAFTAs.  He has twice won the underwater category in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year and has four Honorary Doctorates in recognition of his camerawork, as well as two Polar Medals.  He’s an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society and of the Royal Photographic Society, and in 2018 was awarded the RSGS Mungo Park Medal for his outstanding contribution to geographical knowledge through exploration in potentially hazardous environments.
