Hamza’s first TV appearance was on The One Show, as one of their wildlife cameramen. Today, Hamza is known as ‘Ranger Hamza’ on CBeebies and as one of the regular presenters on ‘Countryfile’ and ‘Animal Park’. Most recently Hamza showcased his true, infectious passion for birds in BBC One documentary ‘Hamza: Strictly Birds of Prey’ which received 5-star reviews and over 3.8 million viewers.

Hamza embarked on his wildlife photography journey by assisting renowned wildlife cameraman Jesse Wilkinson on BBC nature documentaries. He has filmed for BBC’s wildlife documentary series ‘Springwatch’, polar bears for Sky’s series ‘Predators’ and most recently capturing incredible eagle footage for BBC One’s ‘Wild Isles’ in which Sir David Attenborough explores the British Isles, including the extraordinary wildlife surrounding Hamza’s home - a rural part of the west coast of Scotland, with wildlife and nature right on his doorstep as a constant inspiration for his work.

Aberdeenshire based artist Mel Shand will take to the stage to host the conversation with Hamza. There is also an opportunity for you to submit your own question suggestions* in advance of the evening!
