Dive Photo Guide
My first certified dives were in 2001. I rented a film camera from the dive shop in Curacao and took 2 rolls worth of shots. One roll was lost in the mail. It had a shot of a turtle on it and I was very dissapointed to lose it. I decided to buy my own U/W rig and settled on a Olympus C4040 with a Tetra housing.
Needless to say, I was hooked and my diving took on a whole new purpose.
U/W photography has given me an outlet for my creativity as well as a huge new circle of friends. I met my wife on a dive trip and we now we are constantly planning a new adventure in diving as soon as we complete a trip.

What I look for in a Dive Operator:
The first thing I look for is dive freedom. It's very important to have good DM's that not only can show me the subjects, but don't hurry me to finish up the dive.
The best one's are the operators who will ask me every day what I'd like to see or where I would like to dive.
Walindi PNG, Bubbles Below in Kauai, Exmouth Dive, Ningaloo and Odyssea Divers, Lembeh, all live up to those standards.
