Sue Flood

Keynote Presentation | From the North Pole to the South Pole and In Between

Sue Flood is an award-winning former BBC Natural History Unit documentary maker, public speaker, member of the Explorers Club and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. Sue worked on award-winning series The Blue Planet and Planet Earth, before becoming a professional wildlife and travel photographer.

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 Earth’s harshest and most demanding environment.

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 appeared on screen for the BBC, Discovery Channel and National Geographic, and has won multiple awards in competitions including the Travel Photographer of the Year, International Photographer of the Year, International Garden Photographer of the Year, the International Conservation Photography Awards (Best of Festival), and a Royal Photographic Society Silver Medal.

When she’s not in some far-flung location, Sue lives with her husband Chris in North Wales.
