OSE is born out of ‘ground-truth’ gleaned on 30 years of Wilderness expeditions spent tracking polar bears, brown bears and wolves on foot in the high Arctic, climbing expeditions on Denali, Mount Cook and Mount Kenya, multiple Arctic survival dogsled expeditions in Swedish Lapland, scuba-diving expeditions from the Galapagos to diving under the ice with leopard seals in Antarctica, months spent in the jungles of Nepal tracking tigers and years spent observing and interacting with the wild dogs of Mkomazi in Tanzania.
To achieve each wilderness mission we have invested heavily in the most essential ingredient of a successful expedition - expert local knowledge. We have personally sought out the services of elite trackers, wilderness guides, legendary conservationists and award-winning wildlife cameramen who have inturn become close personal friends and trusted expedition partners.
To operate safely in these wild places Olly is trained in austere medicine (Army qualified CMT & BATLS), tactical tracking & survival and he holds current professional qualifications in scuba diving instruction, remote region trauma medicine (MIRA) and has a working experience of emergency diving injury/O2 management and hyperbaric treatment protocols. We have a comprehensive knowledge of extreme environment equipment procurement & survival kit selection and a solid understanding of remote-region operational logistics and communications including; VHF, HF and emergency Satellite communications.
You can rest assured we have done our homework. By working with and learning from an array of experts on over 70 art-making expeditions our field experience has given us the
ability to become adept at identifying true wilderness expertise.
