Diane has recorded in a wide range of environments - from the deserts of the US southwest, while crossing the Andes on horseback, to the rain forests of Panama ... and the urban jungle of Shanghai.

You can read an interview with Diane, detailing some of the her recording adventures & what equipment she uses at:


“I am giving a workshop on the use of stereo to journalists at BBC World Service. Would you mind if I played them a bit of your material? Those pieces I worked on with you still stand up as some of the best-sounding in my portfolio. And that’s entirely down to your recordings.”

— Pez Andrews, sound engineer at & producer of The Sound of Sport
