Hello and welcome to my website. Thanks for visiting.
I have put a number of my favourite images into the Galleries section which would suit those people looking to see the "finished articles". Below you will find my latest Blog entry. There you will find details of my photographic journey to date and some of my recent activities in pursuit of my passion (read obsession) for photography.
If you are interested in my images or have any questions then please contact me. Thanks again for visiting.
I wasn't planning anything too dramatic. The top end underwater housings are very expensive and also physically quite large. Even assuming I was prepared to invest in an underwater housing the difficulties of transporting bulky and heavy items made any such grand ideas quickly fade away. After a bit of research I found a much simpler solution that was considerably cheaper, light weight and would at least allow me to have a play in the water with my camera.
After all of my nerves had gone and one or two tests it appeared that I wasn't going to drown, or get eaten, when I was in the sea. More importantly the camera was also quite likely to stay dry! I therefore took the opportunity most days to go underwater with my camera and a wide angle lens.
The clarity of the water varied from day to day but as this image shows it was possible to get very close to the underwater life.
