My TEDx Talk – Confusing Survival With Success


No Comments

My TEDx talk from last year is finally online! … I think this was one of the hardest but most enjoyable things I have ever done. Public speaking has never been my forte and I would absolutely dread it! Doing this cured me of that and I actually had a great time. To be on a 23M people platform, talking about what I care about … alongside some really inspirational people is a great feeling and I look forward to doing it all over again! Thank you @tedx_official @tedxlstm @katerinacheliotis @sophie_owen87 and @herb.kim for all your support and mentorship and for the amazing opportunity!

OX Bel Ha

What better way to make an exciting announcement than with an exciting video to match! Here is a compilation from our shoot in Ox Bel Ha last week.

I would like to take the opportunity to tell you all about an exciting next step. I have recently applied for and received a position as in house camera AC/diver with Silverback Films in Bristol. The team have an impressive background in producing Natural History TV series over the years. Some of their credentials include Blue Planet, Planet Earth and Frozen Planet to name but a few, and more recently ‘The hunt’ on Netflix voiced by Sir David Attenborough with another series ‘Our Planet’ in pursuit this April. Over the next years I will be learning from and working alongside some of the most prolific ‘Blue-Chip’ Natural history camera operators in the world. This will of course mean leaving Mexico and going to live in Bristol by April and so sadly I will be saying good bye to the caves for now and would like to extend a massive THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me thus far and to those who provided the ‘glowing references’ which helped me attain the position and a significant move forward with my career.

DPV Cave dive in Tajma Ha

“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!
