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.

It was so much fun shooting Nick Clifford after his stage cave course with Mauro BordignonCave World. We had over 200,000 lumens of light to play with in some absolutely beautiful cave off the beaten path!! Hope to see you soon Nick, you did a great job for your first shoot!

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!

Refreshing to work with another creative! Bernadette and I teamed up to practise playing around with lighting in caverns yesterday, moved into cave today and will be diving again tomorrow. So far so good, communication is getting really smooth, I think we will have our own secret language by the end of this project … More footage to come!!
