What cameras, housings and equipment do you use?
I use the best tool for the job at hand, often one of my RED setups. Either a RED Komodo in a Nauticam underwater housing, or my 8K RED V Raptor. Also have a second RED Komodo for as a back-up, plus 3 x GH5's with two Aquatica underwater housings. Light & Motion Sola Video Pro underwater lights, and a selection of RED compatible lenses for a range of shooting scenarios. In addition, I have a Canon R5 for incredibly detailed above water still photography. For aerial I use a DJI Inspire 2 and a Mavic Pro 3 for capturing stunning aerial visuals. Check out all my equipment here.
What are the challenges with videoing from the air, land and sea?
The biggest challenge in these elements is having the correct gear for the shoot. In one day I’ll often be switching between aerial, underwater and land videography, so I have to pack accordingly while trying to maintain a reasonable amount of gear to travel with - some of the places I shoot are very remote or require special transport to get there. It's all about the right tool for the job.
Do you have fun making videos?
Absolutely! It's a great feeling seeing a video through from start to finish, and being responsible for every step of the journey. But I also like to work as part of a larger scale production crew, just shooting underwater video. Both offer their own challenges and rewards.
I license stock video by the second and have rates for exclusive use and non-exclusive, available in 4K and Full HD. Please contact me with a specific request, I'll work with you in a timely manner to provide with the footage you need. I have supplied stock video to the BBC, Netflix, Discovery Channel, Ocean Wise, and other organizations.
