Filming Great white sharks outside of a Cages in Mexico December 2009

In December 2009, Dan spent 10 days working with a group of Sami reindeer herdsman in the Artic Circle.
Conditions were down to -27c, with a windchill factor of -42c!
The was the coldest conditions Dan had flown in,and it was one of his most challenging assignments so far. You can see some of the image from the trip Here.

The extreme cold made it difficult for the engine to start due to the fuel almost freezing! The air was so thin, and there was no wind it made it almost possible for him to take off. The matter didn't help when he had to wear so many layers of clothing.
Dan in in the process of working with a production company to produce a film about the flying reindeer heardsman. Watch this space for more info.

Dan builds his own underwater housings, and has designed housing for still cameras including the Nikon D3. Hasselblad Xpan & SWC, and video housing for the Sony Z1, TG3 & A1. His cameras have been used on numerous assignments, and been used to depths of in excess of 200m. In the last year he has build housing from 3d video cameras, and custom designed rigs for John Downer Production for his Polar Bear Ice Program.
Dan is a pioneer in high resolution panoramic and spherical underwater images and digital underwater photography starting back in 2000.

In Spring 2010 Dan build a 360 degree 3d housing. This unit is not teathered to the surface unlike other cameras made, and the operator can freely swim with it anywhere.
