Roger is and underwater videographer and the Director of the Underwater Images Competition, which is operated as an independent underwater photo and video competition operated on a not for profit basis. Proceeds from the competition are donated to Marine Conservation and Education causes. The Competition is held in March each year in conjunction with the Scubafest Dive Show in Ohio.

My thanks to Jim for his lessons, his mentorship, and his friendship...
