Jack Jackson

An award-winning photographer and author JACK JACKSON has written 18 best selling books, most of which are on underwater subjects. A further book is due out in 2009.

A professional underwater photographer since the early 1970s, from 1975 to 1986 he spent seven months each year running a sport diving operation and diving boat in the Sudanese Red Sea.

Jacks work is published regularly worldwide in aquarium and museum exhibits, major books, magazines, newspapers and their weekend magazine supplements and as Advertisements, Advertising Hoardings, Tourist Brochures, CD-ROMs, Calendars, Postcards, Cereal Packets and inserts, Posters and Postage Stamps. He produces advertising photography and articles for government tourist boards, advertising agencies, equipment manufacturers and charter operators. Nikon Cameras (UK) staged an exhibition of his underwater photography in 1989 and similar exhibitions followed.

Jacks 'The Dive Sites of The Philippines' won 'The KALAKBAY AWARD' for 'The Top Foreign Travel Publication Of The Year 1996' and 'Top Dive Sites of The World' won 'The DIVER MAGAZINE AWARD' for The Top Publication (Book, CD-ROM or Video) of 1997.

What I look for in a Dive Operator:
Honesty and willingness to work rather than laziness and saving fuel/money.
