Dr Helen Czerski goes on a spectacular journey to the extremes of the temperature scale, where everyday laws of physics break down and a new world of scientific possibility begins.

I was DOP on the series, shooting across the UK and Iceland in the summer and autumn of 2017. Main camera was the Sony F55 with B Camera the A7s Mk2 on a small gimbal. Additional photography was on timelapse cameras, super slow-motion and drones.

For visualising the temperature for many of the scenes I opted for a HD FLIR camera and we experimented with a few subjects, including Helen’s badminton class and my local coffee boys Damien and Kris.
