Pete West

Underwater Production Coordinator
Marine / Diving Coordinator
Underwater Gaffer
Underwater Assistant

I have been a professional diver for 27 years, working in oil fields around the world. My diving experience ranges from heavy construction to hyperbaric medicine, photography, submersibles, salvage, defence force liaison and film and television.

My involvement in film and television began in the 1970's and due to demand is now full time. I am also an qualified Master Class V skipper with several years experience navigating vessels between Australia and Europe.

I am an experienced diving and marine coordinator, underwater gaffer and camera assistant. I've worked on feature films, television series, commercials and documentaries. My unique background enables me to coordinate the most complex underwater and marine projects.

I'm committed to research and development and the customising of equipment for underwater use. To the natural history documentary production have experience with state of the art technology including propulsion vehicles, closed circuit rebreathers, lighting and communication systems.
