After filming this epic storm roll in, the wind started to pick up so it was time to bring the drone home. I’m very glad we made that call at the right time because 20 seconds after landing we were in a howling gale and torrential rains! Coming to the end of a shoot here in Thailand, fingers crossed for last days luck! #cuttingitfine #butgottadronethestorm

A baby bottlenose dolphin (a calf) comes over to check me out in waters off Gubal Island in the northern Red Sea. I was lucky enough to spend over an hour with this calf and it’s mother as they swam laps around me. It's incredible to think that bottlenose dolphins are capable of diving well over 250m deep.

A bizarre looking Porites coral and a school of anthias (the bright orange fish). The diversity (the number of different species) of coral reefs is mind blowing. It is estimated that whilst they only occupy 1% of the ocean floor, they are home to more than 25% of the ocean's biodiversity! Coral reefs all around the world are in trouble but why should we care? Well, aside from just being awesome, they provide so many functions that are vital to human existence including coastline storm protection, fisheries production, tourism and climate regulation.

Behind the scenes from my last post of the lettuce coral shot by @takeiteasyduxy. Filming underwater is all about buoyancy. I’m certainly not claiming to have the best buoyancy but here you can see that by finely controlling my buoyancy I am able to get very close to my subject without touching it. Getting close underwater is key as reducing the amount of water between the subject and the camera dramatically increases the clarity of the shot. The no touching part is obviously critical so that both the marine life and other people can enjoy this view for years to come!

A pair of Red Sea Anemone fish swim around their host anemone off the coast of Gubal Island in the North Red Sea. These fish and their anemone provide the textbook example of a symbiotic relationship- one in which two species benefit from each other. The fish benefit as the anemone provides a protective home. The anemone benefits as the fish clean parasites and scare away anemone eating fish.

One last spooky giant moray eel video! Such awesome animals. Shot in the northern Red Sea a couple of years ago.

Giant moray eels look pretty scary, particularly when you come across a big one like this (2.5m/8ft) in the dark of night. However, just like a lot of other misunderstood predators, this eel showed zero aggression towards me. It's simply opening and closing its mouth to breathe. Shot off the coast of Egypt near Gubal Island in the northern Red Sea last year.

Thanks Jackson, you’ve been epic. I had an awesome last day being shown the sights by @jacksonholeecotours. Thanks @verlin_carlton and @joshmettenphoto. Next stop Washington. @natgeo, I’m coming for ya!

I’ve had an awesome week at the @jacksonholewild film festival. I feel lucky to have hung out with some very inspiring people who are really making a difference. Big thanks to @natgeowild and @reddigitalcinema for having me. And thank you to @chaddenhunter - I still owe you a beer. Bring on Jackson Hole 2019!

Killing time by filming bubbles on a scuba diving safety stop can often yield weird and interesting shots! Spot my camera's reflection in the biggest bubble.
