A bit about Clark
At 27 years of age, Clark Carter is passionate about two things: Adventure and Filmmaking.
In 2005, at just 21, Clark, along with fellow adventurer Chris Bray (22), attempted the first complete traverse of Victoria Island in the Canadian arctic, a distance of approximately 1000km, unassisted, using home made (and designed) wheeled kayaks. After 58 days, they found they were only a third of the way across and had to accept defeat. Not ones to give up easily, the pair returned to Victoria Island in 2008, armed with a whole lot of hindsight. They continued where they left off (literally) and after a further 75 days on the land, they finally finished their mission to traverse the Island at it's widest point. Clark and Chris were honoured to receive the prestigious Spirit of Adventure Award in 2008 by the Australian Geographic Society for their efforts.
In 2010, Clark and his mate Andrew Johnson travelled down the length of Papua New Guinea's longest river - the Sepik - from source to sea. The duo hiked through 200km of thick jungle and remote villages, narrowly escaping with their lives after a few whitewater mishaps. When the river became wide enough, they acquired a dugout canoe and travelled the remaining 1000km down stream. After spending five weeks avoiding the crocodiles, bandits and tropical diseases, and suffering from mystery illnesses, foot-rot, weight-loss and fatigue, the guys made it to the Bismark Sea and the end of their journey - tired, filthy... and happy.
Most recently, Clark spent 40 days skiing from the North Pole to Canada, sending out one minute of video each and every day whilst on the ice. This ground breaking journey was the first of its kind to send so much video live from the expedition.
During his travels, Clark endeavours to capture not only his experiences on film, but also record the world through which he travels. Rather than embarking on adventures trying to rule and conquer the elements, Clark chooses instead to immerse him-self in them, and in this way he gets more out of the experience. Exploring how far the human spirit can push the body past its perceived limits, Clark has experienced parts of the globe that very few ever have, inspiring others to also reach beyond their own limits.
Being an active participant in the adventure community, he is currently a member and program co-ordinator for the renowned Explorers Club (Australia and New Zealand Chapter) as well as a member of the Society for Human Performance in Extreme Environments.
