RICHARD MATTHEWS in Memoriam
Producer / Director of Photography
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our friend, colleague and business partner Richard Matthews. He was an internationally recognised wildlife filmmaker with over thirty years of experience in production, camerawork and directing. He joined the BBC Natural History Unit in 1979 working on Wild Track, Animal Magic, Wildlife On One, The Natural World and Attenborough's Emmy award winning series "The Living Planet". After turning freelance Richard filmed in the Serengeti with Alan Root for Survival Anglia.
...
During this time Richard designed and developed the car balcony door bracket now widely used in African wildlife filming. Richard's UK independent production company, Zebra Film Productions, pioneered the theme of dangerous and deadly creatures in "Nightmares of Nature". In 2004 Richard moved to Cape Town and his company, Wild Images, specialized in aerial photography. He developed a number of gyro-stabilised aerial camera systems for use on light aircraft and helicopters.

A very sad farewell to the late great Richard Matthews
Member and friend, Richard Matthews, of Wild Images and Table Mountain Films, has tragically been killed in a plane crash whilst filming aerials over Namibia. He went missing on Sunday the 3rd of March and, after a wide search, his aircraft was sadly then found crashed on the following Tuesday morning. Richard was with his pilot, Mark Berry, who also died.
...
"Richard was doing what he loved and was very excited about his new improved aerial system when he set off for Namibia. He will be missed sorely. Joe Kennedy & Katharina Pechel, Table Mountain Films
"Richard was a good friend and a hugely talented wildlife camera man with many other talents and I will very much miss seeing him at festivals or in Cape Town. My memories of Richard are most often social...
...
In particular, to avoid showing the already familiar wildebeest migration, for his grasslands programme ( Sea of Grass), Richard found himself at a very unfamiliar event in the Sudan. This part of Africa was, and still mainly is, difficult to get into - or even out of. The local Merle tribe hunted the migratory kob antelope as the great herds crossed a narrow stretch of river. This proved to be a truly memorable, almost Biblical, scene with this traditional hunt by naked men using spears. To achieve this "first", Richard and his team proved their determination and imagination and these assets were later to take him far to the south of his beloved Africa, filming many more challenging subjects such as great white sharks, African wild dogs and some of the most beautiful aerial pictures ever taken on that continent. And it was doing that which tragically cost him his life, given so generously to the natural world he loved.

An informal memorial service to celebrate Richard Matthews will be held at the Matthews home in Cape Town on 6th April, from 5PM until 8PM. All who knew Richard are welcome.

"It is with deep sadness that Wild Talk Africa pays homage to Richard Matthews, who tragically past away in a plane crash while filming in Namibia. Richard attended a number of Wild Talk conferences and participated in numerous panel discussions over the years.
