Fairly new to underwater photography. Bought a Sea & Sea DX5000G and started taking images whilst snorkeling to get the hang of the camera and controls. I have now graduated to using the camera whilst diving with a strobe. Favourite place (so far) is probably Red Sea although Maldives is also fantastic as a novice photographer. I am most interested in the underwater wildlife. A most memorable experience was cage diving with 'White Shark Ecoventures' in Gansbaai, South Africa - brilliantly organised and the Great Whites did not disappoint - just do it!!
