Orcalight - Light to Illuminate

Orcalight - Light to Illuminate

Durham manufacturer - Orcalight – made a step change in the underwater lamp market the moment BAFTA and Emmy-award winning underwater cinematographer, Doug Anderson asked them, “Do you know what you have done?”, after trialing their new revolutionary product.

Such an endorsement from Doug and others, who are using the products on the BBC’s Oceans series, Secrets of Micronesia, The Memorial of Pearl Harbor’s USS Arizona and many other series, has led the company to introduce one of the world’s most powerful LED dive lamps on the market today.

With an impressive client list which include The Discovery Channel, National Geographic and The BBC Natural History Unit, their equipment has helped create some of the most breathtaking underwater films and photographs around the world.

Orcalight have also recently supplied Parks Canada with equipment for filming the to-be-released documentary on HMS Erebus, one of the two ill-fated ships captained by Sir John Franklin in search of the Northwest passage that went missing in 1853 in the Artic and was only discovered in 2014.

“The company is young but we are very excited about how things are developing for us. Our technology is incredibly versatile and promises to open up a myriad of other market potential. It is truly awe-inspiring to see our products used in such creative ways whilst helping to produce some of the most stunning images and explore the deepest, roughest waters in the world.”

Shane Newman, Founder and CEO
