I am a Naturalist, Expedition Leader and Undersea Specialist for Lindblad Expeditions (www.expedtions.com). In my role as Undersea Specialist, I dive, shoot video and interpret marine ecology for the guests on our expeditions all around the world. My favorite place to dive is the Antarctic, where I have logged over 250 dives, but most of all I enjoy experiencing the variety of polar, temperate and tropical marine ecosystems all around the planet.
Because I almost always dive with an HD video rig, I use a little point and shoot for still work, currently a Sony N2. It's a bit limiting, but I like the results I get, particularly with semi-macro subjects.
