I have just switched to digital and invested in a D2Xs with Subal housing, currently ironing out some teething problems. I had been diving 5 years and completed over 500 dives before taking up photography. I loved to watch behaviour prior to taking up photography and thought the two were mutually exclusive. I have been happy to find out this is not the case and still find as many critters and continue to see as much amazing behaviour as before. I try to include behaviour in my shots or show some of the organism's habitat to put it in some sort of context. I love travelling to Indonesia for the outstanding species diversity, especially Komodo and Alor.
