On modern ships you have state of the art theatres, multiple live music venues, cinemas, TV studio and many other entertainment facilities. As Production Manager I was in charge of the entire Entertainment department which included the cast of singers and dancers, all the technical crews, broadcast centre and worked with the Entertainment manager to ensure all the programmed events ran smoothly.

While on cruise ships I worked for a while as a ships photographer. I was on board the ship as a musician but as there was little to do in the daytime I would work for the photogs on location getting pictures of the guests enjoying their holiday. Photography has always been a hobby of mine but as a busy musician I was not able to pursue it as much as I would have liked. however;
In 2016 I was in a very bad road accident and that put me in hospital for some time followed by over a year learning to walk again. During this time I trained and qualified to operate Unmanned Aerial systems (drones) for aerial photography and video.
I now regularly go out to take stock footage and photos for stock photo sites as well as work for the press, entertainment video companies, real-estate and industrial companies.
