Jason Isley

Jason left UK in 1995 to travel Southeast Asia and soon discovered scuba diving in Cairns, Australia. Having completed his PADI Divemaster he then trained as an underwater cameraman and towards the end of 1996 joined Simon Christopher on Sipadan to help create Scubazoo.

Since 1996, Jason has filmed and photographed all over the world and has filmed on all of Scubazoo's major broadcast production projects.In 2001 & 2002 he managed all the underwater logistics and filming for the two UK Survivor series, and in 2002 was the supervising director for Scubazoo's role in project managing the Canadian IMAX production, 'Sacred Planet' on Sipadan and in Thailand. More recently Jason has been filming for BBC’s Really Wild Show with Michaela Strachan, Great Ocean Adventures with Monty Halls, Killer Shark Live with Nick Baker, Journeys of a Lifetime with Minnie Driver, Animal Planet’s The Jeff Corwin Experience, Nick Baker’s Weird Creatures and Perfect Predators for Discovery’s shark week.

At the end of 2008 Jason decided to move away from the filming side of the business and concentrate 100% on the photography. He now manages Scubazoo Publications and is concentrating on rapidly increasing the content of the Scubazoo photo library as well as launching more books.Jason was the driving force behind Scubazoo’s first coffee table book ‘SIPADAN, MABUL and KAPALAI – Sabah’s Underwater Treasure’ and more recently project managed their latest coffee table book ‘reef’.

What I look for in a Dive Operator:
An extensive knowledge of the location and creatures, then safe but unlimited diving.
