So here we are! The first diary entry for my next exciting project …
In Feb I completed a TDI Mod 1 JJ CCR course with Matt Jevon. This is to prepare me to shoot Philip Gray on his next extreme art venture where he will paint China’s ‘Shi Cheng’ or the Lion City. This city is submerged in a fresh water lake, at 40m, with some buildings dating back 1000’s of years.
It is so beautifully preserved and I am very much looking forward capture Philip putting the City onto canvas and bringing it to life … Definitely will be a first!
Matt is in charge of the logistics and assembling the rest of the team comprising of safety divers for both Philip and myself, lighting, local logistics/translator and an on site technician.
I will be training in the UK, Ireland, Mexico and Egypt over the time leading up to the project.
