I'm glad to join the Wetpixel community.
I am a wildlife cinematographer. I started diving at 12 before discovering freediving, and finally becoming a rebreather diver allowing me to spend hours underwater without bubbles.
Always passionate about the complexity and richness of marine ecosystems, I first studied marine biology and worked on coral fish larvae in Polynesia, before becoming, over the years, an underwater cinematographer and a wildlife film director.
I started with an independant movie following friends in Alaska, freedivers and photographers too. We were looking to swim with salmon sharks (extract here).
After this first amazing experience, I worked for several nice project like 700 sharks into the night or Under The Pole. I am interested about averythink about video, always trying new rig or adapt some ideas underwater.
On the field, I love feeling all my senses awakening and be torn between the feeling of fear and excitement that come from these intense animal encounters. I aims to melt with the environment, observe without disturbing, to better understand wild behaviours and capture these moments through my camera.
I am specialised in wildlife, you could have an idea of my footage here : Showreel 2020
Happy to learn and share some tips with you on the forum.
