Peter Haken - Wildlife Filmmaker

I'm a professional filmmaker / photographer shooting on ZCam cinema cameras. My other business is Swanky Pixels, a web design studio based in Cornwall specialising in CMS website design. My passion is photography; I love being behind the camera, not in front too much ;-)

Summer months I shoot a few weddings in Cornwall. I love being creative, and it just does not feel like work.

You can see my other businesses here:

Back in 2018, I felt slightly down, did not feel creative and had lost my mojo. I took myself on a road trip with my Dalmation dog called Delilah. I wanted to try and re-kindle my passion again, so we wnt to Exmoor, a place I had never been too.

We aimed for the national park, left in the middle of the night, so to be there before dawn. We just aimed for the green park on the map and pulled over into a sort of field/car park, it was foggy and dark so could not see where we had parked. Put a brew on and started preparing for a day walking.

Then a bellowing sound erupted very close by, to be honest, I felt scared, until I suddenly realised what had made the noise, a Red Deer Stag, I had never seen one let alone heard one. Let's say, I found my passion again or had it found me?
