Keen scuba diver, underwater photographer and windsurfer / sailor.
I did my open water course in Nelson Bay in the early 90’s, but didn’t get serious enough to buy my own gear for about 10 years. A friend convinced me to take on the challenge of learning underwater photography in 2008, by gifting me his old Olympus C740 camera and housing, when he upgraded. Suddenly, I found diving much more interesting as I had a visual record of everything I saw and everywhere I’d been, which could let me enjoy a good dive over and over. I might also say it also made me a better and more aware diver. I took that camera for a two week trip to the President Coolidge wreck in Vanuatu in 2009 and was completely hooked.
Now, on iNaturalist, I have found my photos can be of interest and use to others.
Currently diving with a Canon 1200D DSLR in an Ikelite housing, with twin Ikelite DS161 strobes.
Images taken between 2011 and 2016 were with a Olympus C70-70 camera in an Ikelite housing with twin Intova slave strobes.
