Palau Filming and Photography services

"ParableVR worked with Lightning Strike on a virtual reality film for The Economist about Palau’s coral reefs. From beginning to end they were a joy to work with and were key to the breathtaking VR footage that we eventually achieved. We would work with them again in a heartbeat."
"Richard has the ability to produce great underwater footage in practically every situation, his imagination and use of the environment creates a very exciting and individual style. His technical skills with the camera are some of the best I have ever seen. Combine this with an instinctive understanding of the marine creatures; he really is a top class wildlife cameraman."
