Nov/Dec 2013 - Indonesia's Forgotten Islands Photography Cruise
The photography cruise on board the National Geographic Orion was an outstanding success. Guests from Australia, Britan, NZ and the US, bristling with camera and video equipment arrived in Denpasar Bali to start the ten day journey. Photographer Nick Rains and myself delivered a total of eight talks and workshops during the journey that took is from Bali to Cairns Australia. All lectures and workshops were filled to capacity - some overflowing. Most guests on board agreed that the tiny (Forgotten) Indonesian island of Banda Naira was probably the pick of the locations for stills and video photography.
The bustle of the jam-packed central market on the island of Kisar in the Southwestern Moluccas was also well documented and discussed - with so much to shoot it was hard to know just where to point the camera next. I filmed and edited a three minute video sequence of the market and the local school to demonstrate Final Cut Pro X at one of my at-sea workshops.
