“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”

Marking 3 years of collaboration with Bassline Drift and to many more years of teamwork with this group of people! Over 3 hours of placing light, waiting, modeling and all round having fun being creative. Big thanks to Marty O’ Farrell for the use of some BIG Big Blue lights/HID’s and your support with my work.

Inbetween some exciting projects with more exciting people in the next months look out for more of these compilations capturing some places around in a different light 🙂

NEW GH5S!! First Test


No Comments

Just a smidge over the moon with my new Panasonic GH5 S camera and Nauticam housing! 😍 We put it through it’s paces today pushing its ISO limits with a trial in a large cavern on Chinese Garden line in Cenote Tajma-Ha. It soars past my old GH4 in leaps and bounds in regards to low light … really excited to see what more it can do in the many ideas that are flowing already!

MNemo Demo

Sebastien Kister‘s MNemo has been a game changer in Harry’s exploration and surveying of “String of Pearls”. It was really interesting to see it being put through it’s paces today and how fast and easy it is to use. Here is a short clip demonstrating just that …
If you are interested to find out more about the surveying tool check out Ariane’s Line and stay tuned for the documentary Harry and I are producing about this cave system which will include an in depth feature about device and it’s use in cave exploration.Film and post-production Katy Fraser

TRAILER “A Peace Within” – Out of Darkness into Light


No Comments

 

Here is the OFFICIAL trailer for “A Peace Within” – Out of Darkness into Light.

Philip Gray was dubbed ‘extreme artist’ after a number of expeditions he undertook to paint. He has travelled far and wide to places like Everest, Antartica and deep into the Borneo Rainforest just to name a few locations!

Last month he came here to Quintana Roo in Mexico with aims of capturing the Cenotes by painting UNDER WATER. This was not the first time he has painted under water and the Cenotes proved a different beast all together, even when compared to painting under an Ice Berg or with the Tiger Sharks of the Bahamas.

Meticulous logistical planning was undergone by ProTec DiveCenter to ensure that painting in the overhead environment was both safe and the conservation of the Cenotes was paramount. Over the week he was with us he produced several beautiful Canvas’ truly capturing the beauty of The Pit, Calavera (Temple of Doom), Casa Cenote and Cenote Carwash!

This trailer will be distributed throughout DeMontfort Fine Art Official galleries across the UK and Cruise Ships to launch his new collection “A Peace Within”.

It has been an absolute pleasure to have had the opportunity to shoot and produce this project, something so far removed from anything else I have undertaken. It’s been a challenge, an invaluable experience and most of all A LOT of FUN!
