Tania Escobar

I am a freelance camerawoman specializing in natural history and high end “Blue Chip” wildlife sequences for tv and film. With a lifelong passion for wild places, I have a wide range of remote field experience. I have worked across the world filming wildlife from the deep jungles of Central Africa to isolated locations of South America on productions for clients such as Nat Geo/Disney, BBC, Netflix, WWF, Smithsonian, among others.

I specialize in long-lens and I am also experienced with drones, time-lapse, gimbal and gyro-stabilized systems, camera traps, dollies/sliders, infrared and thermal cameras. I have operated with a variety of camera kits including RED and ARRI. I am trained in rope access (IRATA N1) and skilled filming from tree platforms, hides and in challenging conditions. I have worked extensively in jungle environments and with primates.

I am originally from Mexico, currently based between Mexico and Brazil. My career started working in conservation, producing and photographing content for NGOs. In 2014, after finishing a Masters in Wildlife Documentary Production in England, I began working as a camera assistant. I have been fortunate to assist and spend time on location with some of the very best cinematographers, this has hugely contributed to my development as a camerawoman. By combining my skills and love of natural history my goal is to continue filming stories in unique and cinematic ways that inspire others to connect with nature.
