photographing uw since 1984. I live in Cape Town where I work as a veterinarian and enjoy photographing in the kelp forests, often on snorkel.
use Nikon D7100 in a Nauticam housing.
I try and get to a tropical destination once a year and really enjoy the Lembeh Straits but am happy anywhere so long as I am underwater with a camera in my hand.
