In April 2010 Chris Tan joined up with Underwater Kingdom photographers Jason Isley and Adam Broadbent and underwater model Cara Morrison in the Maldives to shoot high definition underwater footage for a DVD on the marine life of the Maldives.
While onboard the Sultan of Blue liveaboard Chris and the team visited various dive sites around the Maldives, capturing some stunning stock footage of the area. Subjects included honeycomb moray eels, garden eels, parrotfish, whitetip reef sharks, grey reef sharks and the biggest fish in the oceans, the whale shark. Before the footage was added to Scubazoo’s stock footage library Chris edited a short 3min film with a selection of his best video clips. Take a look at the video below.
