Fiona is a broadcast camera operator with over 20 years experience. She has worked on productions for Sky, Formula One, Channel 4, ITV, BBC and Channel 5. She has worked on a wide range of programming from sport and documentaries to live music and international Formula 1 races.
After working as a staff camera operator at Sky Television for many years she has now left to set up World Rallies Productions. She continues to work freelance in the broadcast television industry, predominantly for the BBC, between filming rallies.
Her first car was a 1965 Austin Healey Sprite which sparked her passion for classic and sports cars.
She has volunteered her services filming the Supercar Event for the Childrens Trust since its move to the Top Gear track in 2009.
12 years ago Fiona combined her passion for cars and travel by buying a VW Beetle for £99 and driving it from the UK to Gambia, via the Sahara Desert. She caught the bug, as it were, and followed that with a little jaunt around Italy in a chasing the Mille Miglia. Then came a 10,000 mile drive from the UK to Mongolia in a Micra. Following that were a trip to the Spyker factory in the Netherlands in a BMW E45 M3 and a driving tour of Iceland. When she ran out of rallies to take part in Fiona devised her own route and drove a 1969 Baja Beetle from the UK to Singapore via the Middle East and the Tibetan plateau. She became the first person in the world to drive a VW Beetle to Mount Everest.
Fiona produced a documentary of her 2007 African adventure; Bug to Banjul is available on DVD from Amazon. In 2010 she was asked to film a supercar tour of Norway and in 2015, when she left Sky, she set up World Rallies Productions.
World Rallies Productions first assignment was with Rally Round, filming their 2015 Thunder Dragon Tour of India and Bhutan. She has continued to work with Rally Round producing coverage of their Paris - Vienna Rally, Samurai Challenge Rally of Japan and Paris - Prague rallies. She also produces supercar and classic rally content for Drivetribe.
