My favourite type of flying is skimming through the cloud tops leaving the gloomy world below and bursting into the golden light! It reminds me everyday is actually a sunny day, we just can't always see it
I've really enjoyed capturing aerial views from each country we've visited. Each place looks so unique! The colours, shapes, terrain, road layouts and houses. What a fascinating world we live in!@SonyAlpha#SonyAlpha | A7RII | 12mm | F4.5 | ISO 200 | 1/1250 sec
Whilst filming in Greece we got to visit two very different refugee camps. My good friend @ariamark came back from the Moria camp very emotional from the stories of desperation he had heard there. This lady somehow kept calm in the chaos despite fighting for her families survival. I hope the frustration of seeing others suffer like this can drive people to fight against injustice.
Whilst on the mission to document and share other people's stories I've gained a new excitement for film-making, a desire to shine a light on inspiring people I encounter on my travels!
When we arrived in Lesbos we noticed a odd collection of boats all tied up together. We were told these boats had been confiscated by the coastguard from the smugglers bringing refugees into the country. Some of these boats are overcrowded to the point of sinking and desperate people fleeing war torn countries charged hundreds of euros to travel the narrow stretch of the Aegean Sea.
This trip has changed the way I see the world. People we have met have given me so much hope in humanity despite the evil we see right now in the media. People like Iva! She's a normal Greek girl who has dedicated her spare time to supporting and caring for younger refugees who came to her island of Lesbos without parents. I had to hold back the tears whilst hearing what had been going on here the last few years and the way in which the Greek people have stepped up with such a powerful love
