Creative underwater filming solutions
Hello and welcome to my personal website
I’m an experienced underwater camera operator, stills photographer and all round enthusiastic diver working in underwater film and photography services for TV and Film since 2003.
My sole focus and interest has always been about water, especially our oceans rivers and lakes, and this has developed into a passion committed to supporting TV and film productions working in the underwater environment.
My main objective is to capture exciting and unique images to make your production creative, efficient, and most importantly safe during any underwater film shoot.

A bit about me! I’ve been diving professionally and managing diving and marine operations since 1997, during which I’ve experienced all aspects of underwater TV and film production, and it’s this experience that I pride myself in bringing to your shoot however large or small.
A summary of my professional diving and marine qualifications are as follows:
- IANTD Rebreather Instructor and Instructor trainer
- IANTD Rebreather Cave diving instructor – also valid for wreck and ice diving environments
- MCA commercially endorsed boat skipper – 20 miles offshore for vessels up to 24m in length
- CAA UAV (drone!) pilot – owner/operator – used to flying and operating from boats
- HSE first aid at work certified with remote location add-on training
I also run a small bespoke company called Waterproof Media Ltd which focuses on dry hire of my underwater equipment, you can click on this link to explore my equipment hire website.
Underwater filming is a team effort on most shoots and the crew I work with have personal skills which include underwater filming, boat handling, TV presenter training / safety, marine co-ordination and dive supervision.
I work with other industry professionals to ensure the best service possible, and everyone involved in your shoot will have worked extensively with high profile actors, artists and TV presenters who are engaged to film within the marine environment.
My aim is to make TV and film production on or under the water efficient and as safe as possible and in doing this we maximise production values for cast and crew without ever over complicating the planned project.
