Russell Clark

I love making films - they're a journey. Each one presenting its own unique challenges, and though fun, it can be an arduous undertaking, one that is ultimately very rewarding.

There's something inherently interesting to me about showing a person's relationship or experience with wildlife or an environment. Filmmaking is the ultimate way for me to tell other people's stories.


I am a videographer, a writer, designer, diver, and editor. I am a Jack of all trades, and proud of it. My background has lead me to this place, making me be a better filmmaker.

 

And there's plenty more stories I want to tell.

Code of Conduct

As everyone's favourite neighboured Spiderman would say "With great power comes great responsibility". As scuba divers we are privileged to be able to explore the underwater realm, but we also have a responsibility in the way we conduct ourselves. 

Seaproof.tv pledges to:

  • Dive conscientiously, conservatively and ethically: use good buoyancy control, practice good spatial awareness, secure our gear so it doesn't impact the environment, and adopt environmentally friendly dive practices

  • Be aware of the fragility of reefs and marine life habitats and acknowledge our role as divers in protecting aquatic environments

  • Learn about some of the most pressing problems facing these vulnerable environments and help educate others

  • Never put any marine life in stress to get a shot, always respect marine life, and give them suitable distance

  • To be patient and never force an animal to do something

  • Respect local cultures and customs when you are working abroad

  • Recycle gear packaging, batteries and electrical devices in the proper manner

  • Never put the shot before an animal, diver safety, or aquatic enviroment
