Check Out This RedBull.com Interview Of Freediving Cameraman Alex Voyer


Freediving and underwater documentaries do not often go together. However, one freediving underwater cameraman is rewriting the rule book with his stunning work on Netflix’sOur Planet” documentary.

In a RedBull.com interview, Alex Voyer discusses the various challenges posed by shooting underwater on one breath, especially for his latest work which was shot in Antarctica. The cold posed a challenge as Alex was spending a lot of time in 0 degrees C/32 degrees F water wearing only a 7mm wetsuit.

According to Voyer, shooting as a freediving cameraman requires some adaptation and modification of techniques to those used by a normal underwater cameraman using scuba gear or a rebreather. While it is challenging, one of the advantages of shooting while freediving is your speed of response. If the team sees any action, Alex can be in the water in a flash.
