Filming &  Photography


Talisker has hosted several international film teams with projects around the Fiordland and Stewart Island Coast, These include BBC Natural History Unit, Ushuaia and Red Sky from New Zealand. Working with these highly professional teams has been very interesting and instructional. We are happy Ushuaia Camera Teamto offer Talisker for your project and are confident that we can assist in many ways beyond just supplying a boat. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
