Neil LucasMichael Pitts

Neil Lucas, photographer, award-winning director & filmographer, was a producer with the BBC’s world renowned Natural History Unit for over 20 years. During that time he worked on many international award-winning productions, including Sir David Attenborough’s Trials of Life, The Private Life of Plants, The Life of Mammals, Planet Earth and the highly acclaimed Life Series.

Michael Pitts is widely regarded as one of Britain’s foremost underwater cameramen. However, he is equally happy shooting on the surface or from the air. The many awards he has received include EMMYs for cinematography on two BBC landmark series, David Attenborough’s The Private Life of Plants and Blue Planet.

Michael and Neil have worked closely together on many assignments and they will relate the successes and the disasters they have experienced during their extraordinary careers, including the complications of sinking a ship in the Caribbean and searching for the rare plant Amorphophallus titanum in the Sumatran rainforest.

Join us on Saturday, 7th December at the Grays of Westminster and Nikon Owner Annual Christmas Event at The Royal Air Force Club, 128 Piccadilly, London W1J 7PY for a unique evening and the adventure of a lifetime.

The Royal Air Force Club

Located in London’s Mayfair, overlooking Green Park, the Royal Air Force Club offers luxurious and peaceful surroundings and a ‘home from home’ to serving and former officers of the RAF and Allied Air Forces.

Founded in 1918 and opening its doors in 1922, the Club’s elegant interior has been enhanced to its present high standard. As a charity, their aim is to continue to support the Royal Air Force by preserving and fostering the esprit de corps and traditions of the RAF.

With striking aviation artwork lining the walls, eye-catching stained glass windows and the unique squadron badge corridor, a truly fascinating history has been brought to life at 128 Piccadilly.
