The ocean and cameras...

Two things that have been with me from a young age, are the ocean and cameras. Combining them together and undertaking the relevant training to be become an underwater photographer/ videographer has led me to spend the last 20+ years filming underwater on The Great Barrier Reef and The Coral Sea.

I travelled the world’s oceans. Filming blue whales in Sri Lanka. Sperm whales in remote islands of Ogasawara Japan. Orcas in South Western Australia. Sharks in The Bahamas. Biodiversity hotspots of Papua New Guinea and West Papua. I found a love for maritime heritage from discovering the diverse variety of shipwrecks on The Great Barrier Reef.


Change is the only constant...

Extraordinary expeditions with Silentworld Foundation led to discovering distant shipwrecks in remote coral atolls, such as The Southern Coral Sea, The Far Northern Coral Sea and The Pitcairn Islands, including diving HMS Bounty that hosted the famous story from Mutiny on the Bounty.

Change on the reef, is the most constant thing I have witnessed and filmed. Even though working in the same reef systems for many years, filming the changes made by large destructive cyclones, coral bleaching’s from rising sea temperatures, I have filmed and documented the impact of these events and regeneration of coral reef systems and shipwrecks. 


Hours Underwater




Years on the GBR


20 years of the Great Barrier Reef

Working full time on the luxury dive vessel operated by Mike Ball Dive Expeditions has led me to liaising with marine scientists and long-term contribution to The Minke Whale Project, Project Manta and James Cook University coral reef science, has opened up a huge resource of understanding coral reef systems and how much we haven’t learned about the complexity of reef systems and the immensity of what remains to be discovered.

During this time, I have amassed one of the most comprehensive underwater video and photo stock image libraries of the state of The Great Barrier Reef, before, during and the recovery of the reef through the major impacts that have affected it in the last two decades, from the same locations. Creating one of the most valuable modern records of the state of The Great Barrier Reef today.

Let's talk...

Now working as a freelance videographer/photographer, I continue to work for tourism operators, government organisations, private charter vessels and scientists associated with The Great Barrier Reef and The Coral Sea. Assisting them with creating digital imagery for communication and providing local valuable local knowledge of the reef.
