I started shooting underwater photographs way back in the early 90's during a military posting to Djibouti, as soon as my head went underwater for the first time I knew I had found my calling.

On leaving the service I immediately went through my dive training to Divemaster and moved to Tenerife in the Canary Islands to continue up through that to my Instructor and get some work experience.

One thing led to another and I ended up providing a filming service to dive shops having bought my first video camera, a Sony Hi8 3CCD (king of the hill back then) and an Ikelite housing. Since then I have lived and worked in places such as Indonesia, Yap in Micronesia and Palau.

I now film with a RED One Digital Cinema Camera for professional TV and Film commissions. I am based on the island of Bali, Indonesia.


What I look for in a Dive Operator:
Professional and open minded approach to the, at times demanding needs of the imaging diver. Clean rooms, friendly staff, good food and a fun atmosphere.
