What I look for in a Dive Operator:
As a professional I am expecting the same attention to details that I put in my productions. It takes a lot of time and resources to make top quality underwater images. What people see on the screen is the result of my efforts and I must rely on pro operators to help me make the images. Although I like personal attention like after-dive refreshments, a slice of pineapple or a hot brownie at the end of a cold night dive, I see those things as the icing on the cake. What I count on is well-maintained equipment, ability to help fix a problem with diving gear if needed and the willingness to make the extra effort, drive the extra mile, to provide me with a photo opportunity that will please the readers and the audiences.
