Shooting the Queen Mary 2 coming into Durban Harbour is something I have done for many years now, it’s just fun to get out there and capture this phenomenal cruise liner.
The Queen Mary 2 is Cunard’s flagship and the most magnificent ocean liner ever built. The ship was designed by a team of British naval architects led by Stephen Payne, and was constructed in France by Chantiers de l’Atlantique in 2003. At the time of her construction, Queen Mary 2 was the longest passenger ship ever built, and with her gross tonnage of 148,528 also the largest. She no longer holds this distinction after the construction of Royal Caribbean International’s 154,407 GT Freedom of the Seas in April 2006.
This time I actually didn’t concentrate on shooting stills and rather focused on timelapsing the ship in the port, but you will only get to see that at the end of this month.
