During 2006, 2007 and 2008 I spent many months on location working on the most challenging and exciting project I have ever been involved with- the film "Oceans". Working for Galatee Films (known for “Winged Migrations”) I was part of a team that: > Documented blue whales in Baja California and California, > Sperm whales in the Azores, > Atlantic bluefin tuna off the coast of Turkey, > Jellyfish and otters in Monterey, > Blue and mako sharks off the San Diego coast, > Manta Rays at the Revillagigedo islands. I shot from aircraft, small boats and of course underwater. My assignment was to get the best images I could of the cameraman capturing the action in 35mm film and in high definition video and to get the best image of the subject possible. My images are being used for publicity of the film and in book projects associated with the film. The film "OCEANS" was released in Europe in January 2010 and was released by Disney in the US on Earth Day 2010.
