About Me

Nancy Roach - Documentary filmmaker

My Story

II’m a documentary filmmaker and photographer, based on Vancouver Island, on the west coast of Canada. Visual storytelling is my passion; I love getting to the heart of stories about people, wildlife and our environment. My experiences of travelling, living and working in many countries around the world, along with my creative skills and knowledge, have taught me how to work with people to gain their trust. This gives me the opportunity to make a positive impact; to convey the essence of their story with authenticity.

In the UK I studied Documentary Photography at the renowned Newport School of Art course with high profile documentary photographers including David Hurn, Martin Parr, Daniel Meadows, Don McCullin, and Peter Marlow, and then freelanced in the UK and Australia.

Later, I taught Digital Media Skills and Interactive Media at Lincoln School of Film and Media in the UK, before moving to Canada twelve years ago. After working as a video editor for the last six years I took further training in film production, and now freelance as a documentary filmmaker.

When I'm not working, you’ll find me out around the coasts of Vancouver Island on my paddle board, learning about the coast, the people, and the wildlife who inhabit these beautiful lands.
