The Netflix documentary features renowned photographers as they capture amazing sights around the world. In the first episode titled Submerged, Australian nature photographer Darren Jew films the 70-year-old wreck of a Mitsubishi Bi-Plane and active volcano in Rabaul, Papua New Guinea, with the help of Stephen and his staff.
Prior to his tragic death in 2014, Stephen was a close friend of VSA, placing two of our volunteers at the dive business he shared with his wife Marsha and playing host to many other volunteers and visitors over the years.
Stephen (34) and four other men were killed while examining a shipping barge in November 2014. They lost consciousness due to a lack of oxygen, while checking the barge for damage to its bow.
The documentary pays tribute to Stephen via a dedication at the very end of the first episode. VSA continues to mourn Stephen and we have also received numerous tributes from volunteers, friends and strangers leaving comments on our original memorial post. Thank you for your contributions and memories of Stephen.
