Sue Flood is an award-winning photographer and filmmaker, adventure travel leader and public speaker. Her work takes her all over the world but she has a special passion for the wildlife and icy beauty of Antarctica and is one of the very few women who chooses to return again and again to this harsh and most demanding environment.
Her first visit to the Poles happened more than twenty years ago while making nature television documentaries. Sue spent eleven years with the BBC Natural History Unit, working on series including The Blue Planet and Planet Earth.
Her adventures in the Arctic and Antarctic have included camping at -40°C in the Arctic winter, diving with leopard seals, working on Russian icebreakers on trips to the North Pole and Antarctica, and living with Inuit hunters on the floe edge.
Sue has won multiple awards in competitions including Travel Photographer of the Year, International Photographer of the Year, International Conservation Photography Awards (Best of Festival), and gained a Royal Photographic Society Silver Medal.
