About Waterproof Media Underwater Filming

Professional underwater and marine-filming solutions
Waterproof Media is a small and friendly company managed personally by myself, Richard Stevenson.

My focus and interest has always been about water, especially our oceans, rivers and lakes, and this has led me to a career in TV and film supporting on or underwater filming.

I have been diving professionally and managing marine operations for 22 years, during which time I have experienced all aspects of underwater TV and film production, and it’s this experience that I pride myself on bringing to any shoot, however large or small.

In addition to the underwater filming I can do, I’m also able to support production with marine co-ordination, boat location and placement, underwater camera hire and TV/film safety consultation and risk assessment.

A summary of my professional qualifications are as follows:
  • IANTD Rebreather Instructor and Instructor trainer
  • IANTD Rebreather Cave-diving instructor – also valid for wreck- and ice-diving environments
  • MCA commercially endorsed boat skipper – 20 miles offshore for vessels up to 24 m in length
  • CAA UAV (drone!) pilot – owner/operator
  • HSE first aid at work certified with remote location add-on training

I’m based in Bath, covering Bristol, London, Cardiff, Devon, Cornwall and Manchester. I’m also happy to mobilise further afield throughout the UK/EU and worldwide if required. My boating and marine filming equipment is located down in Devon, so I split my time between the two locations.

I operate as a free-lancer, but also run a small company called Waterproof Media. My company exists to provide the insurances cover and legal representation needed when working underwater in the UK and coastal waters.

My company is also named on the BBC and ITV approved diving contractors list, and has been independently vetted by 1st Option Safety services in London, details of which I can provide.

Underwater and marine filming services
For any underwater and marine filming services, I can document extensive experience in all aspects of filming, including the following:
  • Natural history
  • Shorts
  • TV drama
  • Feature film
  • Narrowcast online content
  • Broadcast TV commercials
  • Presenter-led documentaries

Above all, I am used to working with high profile actors, artists and presenters who become engaged with filming in the marine environment, and I pride myself on a ‘safety-first’ approach, without over complicating production needs.
