I’m a film maker, underwater and commercial photographer, digital artist and author.
My film making career stretches back three decades during which I’ve produced, directed and written films for some of the world’s leading businesses. Along the way my work has been recognised by top international awards that include Gold and Silver winners at the US Film and Video Festivals and World Media Festivals. I’ve also produced several broadcast documentaries.
My true passion, however, is for the amazing diversity of life that lives below the waves. I dive a lot which is made possible by currently being based in the Sultanate of Oman. My new photographic coffee table book ‘Secret Seas’ has been seven years in the making during which time I have travelled to diving locations in the far north to the far south of Oman. The world below Oman’s waves is spectacular and in some ways unique. Secret Seas is set to be published in the middle of 2021.
When I’m not working on Secret Seas I undertake land-based and underwater commercial photography assignments for a range of clients.
My digital art is inspired by the underwater world and I specialise in painting not just marine life but also land-based animals which rely on the oceans for their survival. My concerns for how Climate Change is destroying life in our precious oceans inspires my art.
And then there’s my writing. My first novel ‘Ripples of Loss’ is set in the dark world of a Venezuelan cocaine cartel and includes some high tempo diving action. My second novel ‘ECO: The Fight For Life’ is also a thriller set in the world of climate criminals.
