Lonely Planet Port Douglas Shoot

I love shoots up north this time of year, a great way to break up the Melbourne winter. What better place than Port Douglas where it’s 28 degrees and sunny while in Melbourne it’s polar fleece jackets and beanies.

I spent 3-days shooting a feature story on Port Douglas for Lonely Planet interviewing one of the local aboriginal artists about his work, his connection to the land and a day out on the reef diving with sea turtles.

The C100 continues to prove itself as a fantastic documentary and travel camera allowing me to pack light, shoot all day on 1-2 batteries and keep on shooting after the sun goes down with it’s low light ability. The DJI Phantom 3 was used to capture aerials and GoPro Hero5s for some of the water sequences.

The story is being edited back at Lonely Planet, hopefully I’ll be able to post the story here once it’s done.
