Dry Caving

Puerto Aventuras Dry Caving and flooded cave exploration


No Comments

Last day of exploring in this system. We spent from 9am to 4:30pm under ground surfacing only briefly to change entrance. All in all the cave was small and crawly which was fun! My legs and arms are black and blue but it was totally worth it. There were some chest high sumps which we got to wade through and in to survey and see if they went (and also cool down). There were lots of laughs between a steady flow of jokes and Juans ‘cave spiders’. The past few days have been an amazing and valuable experience and i’m really looking forward to more dry caving in the not too distant future!

Philip Gray – Casa Cenote ‘Extreme Art’


No Comments

Tempted to say my favourite of the shoot so far! The diversity of the cenotes here is just incredible! Today we headed to Casa Cenote and in Philip‘s words “the light beams are almost biblical”. To be honest this is such an aesthetic dive site and providing conditions are right as it’s connects straight into the ocean it really is hard to take a bad shot!

Philip Gray – Calavera ‘Extreme Art’


No Comments

We shot at Calavera  for the third canvas in the collection, otherwise know as the ‘Temple of Doom”. This was a more challenging shoot as the painting sat in the halo-cline and so a lot of the shots were hard to focus. The visibility wasn’t at it’s best and the beams not at their brightest. These things happen when your shooting on location and have no control over the elements and nature. Only two paintings left, and Philip has chosen Carwash and Casa Cenote.

Philip Gray – Pit II ‘Extreme Art’


No Comments

We went back to ‘The Pit’ today for Philip‘s second canvas of the collection and to experiment with some different paint application techniques. Another beautiful painting emerged from the depths boasting a particularly spectacular perspective of the Pit.

Up bright and early tomorrow for a change of site for Shoot III – Canvas III.

Behind the scenes of ‘Nature’


No Comments

Quick peak on location at Diving Prestige SA and behind the scenes for the music video. Trying very hard on this edit not to give too much away! This is will be last video diary until the Music Video is finished for spoiler purposes.

The aim of the finished product is to echo the theme of ‘Metamorphosis’ by the way of movement, visual transition and colour.

Some behind the scenes in preparation for the next creative shoot, another underwater OFFICIAL Music Video for Bassline Drift .

We got some surprisingly aesthetic shots playing around in our little pool with material and ideas … and maybe had way too much fun!

OFFICIAL Music Video – Bassline Drift ‘Drink the Water Down’


No Comments

This ‘water’ led a someone down a deep rabbit hole that has her a little confused, but, everything is beautiful so she has no need to worry. Everything will continue to be beautiful and no reason to fear because fear is only an illusion in the mind.

So proud to have had the opportunity to direct, shoot and produce this very special music video. It has been a totally different area of filming for me and one I have definitely fallen in love with. Many, many hours of hard work, both in the Cenotes of the Riviera Maya and behind the computer have gone into this one!

I am very excited to share it with you all!

ProTec Riverrun Cave Shoot


No Comments

We went out for the first time to film as a team on a stage dive at Ponderosa on the River Run line. Rob and Patrick took on the roles of models and Toro and I teamed up as film and lighting crew. It was great to work with someone doing my lighting and also acting as my safety diver. For a first time I think we got some awesome shots, it’s not as easy as it looks! I am very happy with the result!
