"....Steve managed and directed the filming during the very demanding and physically challenging K2O kayaking expedition that has resulted in a 6 part TV series featuring 3 kayakers crossing the Arabian Gulf, through the Straits of Hormuz and out into the Arabian Sea.


This was an unprecedented logistical nightmare that Steve rose to the occasion well to and managed to shoot exciting and sufficient material for the 6 x 26 minute series. His determination and dedication is deeply impressive and despite difficult working conditions (including a sinking support vessel and threatening storms, not to mention official red tape) - Steve took charge and simply got on with things making the best of tricky situations. Steve's professional demeanour and rigorous attention to details and filming opportunities are his finest qualities as a self-contained production unit when filming and directing in any circumstance. We are deeply grateful for his commitment to go over and beyond expectations to make things happen!..."
