‘Winner’ Ocean Geographic Vision of the Sea Award 2024

Underwater Cinematography is my passion, from the tiniest macro subject to the largest battle scarred Great White Shark I love filming them all. I enjoy challenging myself to capture incredible detail of the tiniest subjects, including some never before seen animal behaviours and bringing them to the world. I am based in Adelaide South Australia and I specialise in documentaries and the natural history of our oceans. Most recently I have been working as an underwater camera operator for an exciting new Netflix natural history series called ‘Oceans’. I own and operate a Nauticam V Raptor Underwater Imaging System with Red 8k S35 V Raptor, as well as a JJ-ccr closed circuit rebreather.
