Brian Mayes Profile

Brian Mayes

I am from United Kingdom
Member since: Friday, December 16, 2005
Started U/W photography in 1994 with a Nikonos V as means to identify what I had seen U/W.
First digital camera, Nikon Coolpix 990, Ikelite housing and Video Lite.
My favourite dive destinations are Brunei and Nelson Bay, Australia.
My favourite dive site, is Lucky Bay in Western Australia, a fantastic shore dive, with Kangaroos on the beach and Sea Dragons underwater.

I'm currently using a compact Canon G12 with Nauticam housing and only the internal flash.
