Jaimen Hudson

Western Australia
Videographer, photographer

Jaimen became a quadriplegic after a motorbike crash at the age of 17. Before this life-changing event, he was a keen surfer and diver who loved seeing marine life up close. After meeting a film-maker in 2014, Jaimen was inspired to carve out a new career as a videographer and photographer. He bought a drone, gained a commercial licence and got to work. The Esperance local has since shared his magnificent footage of whales, dolphins and other sea life across the world. Having been the subject of From Sea To Sky, an award-winning documentary about his life and return to diving, Jaimen now wants to develop his skills so he can work on his own documentary projects. This grant is helping him to buy new equipment to enable him to operate it independently.
