In The Shadow Of Thor

In a land that never melts, high in the Canadian Arctic lies an Arctic Cordillera where peaks of the Norse Gods; Mt Thor, Mt Odin and Mt Asgard tower over a frozen Nanuvut tundra. It is here where Australian photographer Mark Watson claims he feels most alive.

For many years Watson’s world was that of adrenalin & action sport but a decade of photographing everything from motorsport to big wave surfing awoke a spirit for a new challenge… something rawer.

This short behind the scenes film by award winning producer, director and DOP Jase Hancox touches on the drive behind Watson’s imagery and his search for something purer and more challenging than that of fast paced action.

It’s a journey of a simple walk in a park. It just so happens it is one of mother nature’s most majestic national parks and the temperature outside Watson's tent is well below -20 degrees Celsius.
