Tarpon Springs, FL (PRWEB) November 06, 2013
Captain Robert Mayne, the President of Aqua Quest International Inc., is pleased to announce that Michael McCabe, internationally acclaimed photographer and filmmaker has joined the Aqua Quest Board of Advisors and is currently engaged in several Aqua Quest field investigations.
McCabe, a native of Woodstock, New York, who is currently based in New York City, is recognized as a fashion photographer (ELLE magazine) and well traveled photo journalist and cinematographer (This is Congo). Robert Mayne believes that “Michael’s ability to capture and document action and adventure in a dangerous field environment has a good fit with Aqua Quest’s world-wide undersea exploration and adventure projects.”
Recently McCabe returned from the Democratic Republic of the Congo where he completed a documentary film titled, “This is Congo”. This film focuses on issues that have plagued and continued to plague the Congo – the plight of child soldiers and the illicit and violent black market mining industry. In one chilling film clip three child soldiers hold McCabe and his film crew at gun point with their Kalashnikov assault rifles.
Michael has produced and filmed two short documentaries titled, “Mother Grain” and “Street Waves.” For “Mother Grain” the film team traveled to remote regions of Bolivia to document the difficult life of Quinoa farmers. The film “Street Waves” follows surfer and activist Maui Goodbeer as he fulfills his quest to get inner city kids away from gang riddled streets of Miami by teaching them the sport and mindset of surfing.
Recently, Michael has joined the Aqua Quest crew on three film projects. These projects are the search for the remains of a sunken seventeenth century Spanish Galleon in the Florida Keys, the salvage of a valuable copper ore shipwreck off North Carolina, and a mystery sunken structure offshore of South Bimini Island, on the Great Bahama Bank. Captain Mayne and Michael McCabe believe that the Bimini Project has the potential to write a new chapter in the quest to unravel some of the mystery that surrounds the sunken Bimini rock formations – most notably the mystery of the Bimini Road.
