I have been diving since 1994 and to show friends and family what diving was about I started underwater photography with a Sea&Sea Motormarine IIEX and single strobe in 1999. I then upgraded to a SLR and used a Nikon F90X in a Sea & Sea housing with twin YS350TTL Pro Strobes and guide number controller. All my shots were captured on Fujichrome Velvia Slide.

At long last I made the move to digital in December 2011 and now shoot a Nikon D300s with twin YS250 strobes.

My favourite dive destination is Jeff's Palm Resort in Mozambique.
