Noted Nature Cinematographer John Bax
John filming near Brownsville, TX
John Bax, born in Belgium, is now a Canadian citizen and a resident of the US. His story is an "ugliness to beauty" tale that starts in pre-WWII Belgium and takes him all over the world in search of birds.
Over the years, he filmed and sold his work to Discovery, National Geographic, Untamed World and other international programs. His work has reached viewers in more than 200 countries.
John 's travels took him from the Arctic to the Tropics as he searched for rare and exotic birds to film. Now in his 80s, he is still filming and producing videos to teach people about birds and their habitats.
Working on his story and reviewing his work is a venture into nature's beauty and man's determination to capture it. I hope to finish the book this year.
