Matt N

Matt N,
Documentary Cameraman

Name: Matt Norman

Job: Documentary Cameraman

Age: 38

Luxury item: Battery-powered toothbrush, reversible Y-fronts

Phobia: Leeches. Forgetting to hit the record button

Will miss: Gemma. Hoovering the leaves up in my garden

Looking forward to: Freeze-dried food. A fresh pair of underpants in week 5. Capturing on film one of the most bio-diverse regions on the planet. Learning first-hand how native cultures in the Amazon are being forced to adapt to change.

Dreading: Being lost in the Andes and having to choose who to eat. Someone finding my stash of chocolate brazils hidden in the camera boxes.
