Arun Madisetti Profile

Arun Madisetti

I am from Dominica
Member since: Thursday, December 11, 2003
Born young, I began swimming from the age of 3. I learned to dive at 16 and never looked back. Got a Minolta Weathermatic as a present on completing the dive course and imploded it a year later. I've been shooting better underwater since 1990, and have been published in several magazines; some with articles, some without, brochures, fliers, on the web and some coffee table books.
Current underwater camera system is now an Ikelite D90 housing with Inon z220 strobe and D2000 slave, hiding in a cupboard are Nikonos V's with arrays of lenses and strobes, an Olympus 5050 (one body, 4 housings remain) with wide angle and dome, and diopters ..one day I dream of a Nauticam housing..

I have been a scuba instructor since 1988 first with BS-AC in the UK then switched to PADI. Married with two great offspring (one of each), I am a director of Images Dominica with business partner Simon Walsh.
