Raya Divers

Raya Divers

This year I was invited along on the Raya Divers end of season expedition. Every year they head to a new and exciting dive destination and this year it was to the Sogod Bay in Southern Leyte in the Philippines. We dived with Pete’s Dive Resort in Padre Burgos and kudos to those guys for looking after us so well. Especially for letting me dive wherever the hell I pleased for as long as I wanted every dive.

I was filming with my new Nauticam Rig, housing a Panasonic GH4 with 12 – 35mm F2.8 glass. I shot the whole trip in 4K just for fun. The underwater portions of the filming will be shown on Earth Touch Wild Oceans later this month, but for now here’s a quick intro to the trip.

Special thanks to Raya Divers, Earth Touch, and Pete’s Dive Center.

Bajau People of Sulawesi

Bajau People of Sulawesi

 

In December 2014 I travelled to the remote island of Hoga – part of the Wakatobi archipelago off the South East corner of Sulawesi. Essentially I was there collecting marine footage for Earth Touch. While there I met Melody Lynch who was living in a small Bajau community as part of her fellowship program. I spend many days filming the Bajau people in their beautiful stilt village of Sampela and also out fishing and sailing around the immediate area as they showed me their prowess in the water. Bajau are renowned free divers and I personally witnessed divers descending easily to 20 meters without the aid of fins or flippers.
