Filming – BBC Big Blue Live

In July 2015 Scubazoo senior cameraman Simon Enderby had the pleasure of working with TV presenter Steve Backshall once again. A veteran of several shoots on Steve’s wildly successful shows Deadly 60 and Pole to Pole this expedition saw Simon diving with Steve off the wild coast of Monterey Bay, California. This immensely productive bay  came up with some amazing encounters, including; baitballs of krill, mackerel held under-siege by Californian sealions, Pacific white-sided dolphins, Dalls porpoise, common dolphins, hunting harbour seals, immense schools of market squid  as well as flocks of shearwaters, pelicans and albatross. Even basking Mola mola, humpback, minke, and blue whales turned up to get on camera meaning Steve and Simon were kept very busy indeed. An incredible introduction to Monterey’s underwater world which will be fully unveiled in August’s Big Blue Live.
