PARTNERS : PHASEONE / BRONCOLOR / RED / LEICA / IWC WATCHES / OJAS / MARES SCUBA / PATAGONIA
For the last 6 years I have teamed up with @MorneHardenberg to document the exhibitions. I must say finding the right "dive buddy" or teammate is like finding your husband or wife. It's been an amazing journey and the one we are on now is hands down the best of them all. We are criss crossing the planet capturing the #holyGrails of diving. The clip above is Morne's RED footage of a couple Great Whites that have come across a whale that had been most likely killed by a container ship. They finished the entire whale in that couple days. Our 7 man team is loading up the boats and heading out to the oceans off Cuba as I type this. Castro protected These waters since he himself was an avid diver and Morne and myself are like two little school boys holding our 11 cameras eagerly ready to rock & roll.
So thrilled to wake up 4am and start diving #CUBA for the first time! I have been hearing about it for years from my fellow divers and it's Rich oceans teaming with life. Ocean Crocs and many other fun creatures to play with. Thank you Castro for protecting the oceans Around the Island.
Had a couple amazing weeks with my shark mentor @mornehardenberg from @shark_explorers who captured this beauty going for its high blubber diet of Seal for breakfast. We are almost half way through an epic film with @RSAfilms that is going to blow some minds. In a couple weeks we will be on the other side of the 🌎 back at it. Last day in Africa tmrw, and what an amazing month it's been.
So amazing to get so close to these animals. This morning my wife & a couple of my daughters took a morning walk with a cheetah in the wild and were able to walk up and pet her. Really is a dream come true to watch my Girls take it all in like I did when I visited Africa for the first time at age 9.
Loved flying out to dessert in a helicopter and then shooting @therock for @HBO #BALLERS The Rock is in a league of his own when it comes to being professional combined with humility and sprinkle the best smile ever. Honor and a privilege to photograph him year after year. Photo "courtesy HBO"
I can't wrap my head around why any person would want to Slaughter this amazing creature to ONLY cut its horn off???? In 2017 every person should KNOW there is NO medicinal value in its horn and they have Viagra now. These guys face extinction and if you want to help in anyway possible, please contact @WildAid
Jellyfish freak me way out. If you've ever been stung by one you know what I'm talking about. Oh and that little fish that swims in behind it, nothing to fear with her. She's just a lil cutie. My DP on this project @jeffv0 caught this moment while I was under with my back turned to him of course. Team work makes the dream work, @shark_explorers oh how much I love Africa........ #RSAfilms
On this 47th year on this planet, the best gift ever is witnessing my 3 daughters get to see some of the ocean and wildlife still left on this planet to see. A decade ago I feared they wouldn't get to and fortunately there is still "some" left to witness. My wish today is that we will as a species start to make some big #CHANGES
