A collage of images from a recent trip to Arnhem Land in Australia's Northern Territory.
Predominately a shoot to capture the amazing fishing in this region (more on that to come) I have purposely left out all of the fishing action sequences as my passion is always for the environment and exploring remote locations so I wanted to highlight just a few of the amazing landscapes we visited over eight days.
On this trip I travelled with 4 other guys who are definitely passionate about their fishing and this wilderness area of Northern Australia. To them Arnhem Land is about being remote, camping under the stars, and living off the land. I hope you will be able to get a feel for living the idyllic wilderness experience through this film.
Filmed with two 5D's and the Canon XF305 generously supplied by Graeme Carleton from Canon Australia, never was there a more fitting test of camera equipment under some of the toughest filming conditions imaginable. Without so much as one hick up the Canons performed brilliantly as I have come to expect.
This is the basis of a broader project in the pipeline. For now it's just a small indulgence of mine so I can show off to my family and friends just how special Arnhem Land is.
For those of you who don't know, Arnhem Land can only be visited with permits granted by the traditional owners of the land, some who I met on this trip and have the greatest respect for.
I'm impatiently hoping to return one day to continue my exploration of a wonderful part of this world.
