Captain Poses For Epic Picture On Bow Of His Huge Ship

The photoshoot took months of planning.

1. Photographer James Morgan decided to create something a bit special to mark the Queen Mary 2’s 10th anniversary.

When he first suggested placing Captain Kevin Oprey on the liner’s bulbous bow for the photoshoot, people apparently looked at him like he was ‘a bit mad’.

2. However, the idea was clearly inspired as the pictures look astonishing.

3. The shoot took place at a port off the coast of Bali with two safety boats positioned nearby just in case.

Commenting on the striking images, Morgan said: ‘It is this towering creature and this little man, it is an incredible juxtaposition. He is an incredible man, this beautiful huge liner he controls every day.

‘It is one of the most epic shoots I have ever done.’

4. Brilliant.
