Carla Joan Braun-Elwert

I have 10 years' experience editing wildlife and human documentaries, in both Germany and New Zealand. Occasionally I am behind the camera and love being out on location, especially in the alpine world. I grew up mountaineering and am at home in wild places, and am passionate about nature and wildlife conservation.
