Nick Shoolingin-Jordan

Nick is a multi-award winning filmmaker, hot off the plane from filming the most ambitious project in National Geographic's history, ‘One Strange Rock’, a new global event series in collaboration with Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan, Noah).

The films will take viewers on a thrilling visual journey to celebrate the fragility and wonder of life on planet Earth. Filming has taken Nick on nail-biting expeditions to war-torn DRC, descending into the caldera of Nyiragongo, one of the worlds most dangerous volcanoes, to the dizzying heights of Angel Falls in Venezuela, into the depths of ‘Lechuguilla’, the most beautiful cave on the planet, and deep into the bitter cold deserts of Mongolia to document the fabled Eagle Hunter of the Steppe.

Nick is a multi-disciplinary creative: Cinematographer, Writer, Director, Biologist, Adventurer and Photographer with a passion for the environment. Whether he’s capturing the never-before-filmed tribe in the brutal heat of the Amazon, self-shooting the tiger-infested mangroves of Bangladesh, or capturing the critically endangered condors of the Grand Canyon, getting crew and kit in and out of some of the world's most savage and unforgiving environments is often the hardest thing. Filming might be the mission but fastidious planning, intelligent assessment of risk and surrounding yourself with the right team can be the difference between life and death.

Nick’s past career includes blue-chip science, adventure, natural history and top-end CGI spectaculars, including hits such as ‘Ed Stafford’s Into the Unknown’, ‘Earth’s Natural Wonders’ (PBS/BBC), ‘How to Grow a Planet’ (BBC). He has won two prestigious Wildscreen Panda awards for ‘Richard Hammond’s Journey to the Centre of the Planet’ as well as one Banff Rockie award, and the Emmy-nominated ‘How to Build a Planet’ won best Environmental & Natural History film at the Realscreen Awards. Holding a Bachelor of Science in Biology, Nick is passionate about the miracle of life on earth and driven to tell the challenging stories in which our human and natural worlds collide.
