Challenger Deep

James Cameron's Deepsea Challenge

Stock Footage Stereographer

As you may have heard, James Cameron took an epic journey to the bottom of the deepest part of the Mariana Trench; the Challenger Deep, almost 11km straight down.

In making a 3D documentary about the experience, his production team have sourced a number of underwater shots from the Coral Sea Expeditio n that I did in 2012. On this project I worked with Ocean Planet 3D as the underwater stereographer, making sure the shots were technically correct. It was an amazing experience; diving with minke whales, hundreds of sharks, moray eels and potato cod on one of Australia's most pristine reefs. You can read more about it here .

James Cameron's Deep Sea Challenge 3D is being made in partnership with National Geographic and you can find out much more about the project at their website You'll see one of my shark shots in the trailer (if you don't blink) at 2:16.
