Mark Thomas Profile

Mark Thomas

I am from United Kingdom
Member since: Tuesday, February 8, 2005
Have been diving since giving up rugby in 1998, and taking underwater photos since 2002.
Majority of my diving is around UK and Ireland - poor weather, bad viz and cold water!
Recently retired after 34 years in the NHS, now reliant on a pension to pay for equipment, dive trips and an expensive wife.
D3 in Sea & Sea Housing, various lenses.
