Talisker - Culture trip


​This great little film produced by Talisker and Culture Trip features wild swimmer and offshore medic, Norman Todd.

I was commissioned to DP the section of the film featuring Norman's work life aboard the gas rig in the Irish Sea. As a BOSIET and MIST qualified, offshore DP I have the necessary experience and certifications to be able to work on oil and gas installations. After flying out from Blackpool I spend the night onboard the AP1 platform in the Morecambe Bay gas field and filmed Norman both at work and relaxing.
