Julian Braatvedt wanted to be a wildlife cameraman from the age of five.
After completing his bachelor's degree at AUT, he made tracks to South Africa, where he trained as a safari guide.
He then put in three years as a camera assistant in Botswana before finally realising his dream.
He's back off to Zambia this week, so we thought we better have him stop by for a chat.
Julz spoke to Eric Young.
