I started with a camera in the late 60s as my grandfather was a photographer and worked for Zeiss and then Kodak. In the 70s I moved to my first 35 SLR. Architecture school turned into a BFA in photography by the mid 80s and in 1989 I finally bought myself a Nikonos V. I have been doing almost 2 liveaboard dive trips a year with 7-10 days of nothing but diving (maybe eating and sleeping too). I have and still only shoot Kodachrome 64 underwater and hand print my own Cibachromes, now known as Ilfochromes. Only large prints will do for me as I want the viewer to want to swim in, most are either 10x14 or 14x20s. I have since moved to a Nikonos RS (2003) and really have enjoyed the TTL experience. No more aim and hope the parallax does not kill you. I have always enjoyed diving in the Coral Sea, which is a few hundred miles outside the Great Barrier Reef. I will never forget the 150 m vis for our first dive in Oct 1993, and have been back 5 more times never to find it quite like that.
