Alex Kirkbride is an award-winning photographer with an international following. His water images have been exhibited in England, Italy and the United States, included in private collections, appeared on numerous covers worldwide and been published in the most respected journals such as National Geographic, Vogue and the New York Times to name but a few. Alex began to develop his style 25 years ago while working as a divemaster in the Bahamas at the Rum Cay Club, Rum Cay, before becoming an assistant to the well-known photographer Albert Watson in New York City. Since he began his own business in 1991, Alex has been included in the book \"Ocean\", \'Photographs from the world\'s greatest underwater photographer\'s\"; won an award with Communication Arts and created imagery for such advertising clients as Bacardi and the US Virgin Islands. In 2002 Alex decided he wanted an \"immense creative challenge.\" So he set out on a 3-year journey across the United States, living in an Airstream trailer with his partner Hazel Todd, traveling 108,000 miles to photograph aquatic images in every state. The result of this project is his coffee table book \"American Waters\" published by David and Charles with the foreword written by Jean-Michel Cousteau (Sept. 2007). Cousteau wrote: \"Alex has pushed us to appreciate all water on Earth, no matter how simple or small. He shows us grandeur in the easily overlooked.\"

What I look for in a Dive Operator:
The most important thing for me is to work with a dive operator who is experienced, well organized and flexible with knowledgeable and helpful divemasters who give me the freedom and assistance I require to do my thing.
