Joris van Alphen is a documentary cinematographer specializing in films about people and nature.
From camping in the canopy of a fig tree deep in the Amazon rainforest to diving unexplored coral reefs in the northern Moluccas, Joris has extensive experience working in remote locations. Growing up with biologist parents, he embarked on his first field trip to Africa at the age of three. He went on to study biology himself but left a career in science to become a full-time filmmaker and photographer. His work has since spanned five continents for clients including National Geographic and the BBC Natural History Unit.
