Tom Ashton Profile

Tom Ashton

I am from United Kingdom
Member since: Friday, July 23, 2010
I live on the East Coast of Scotland, in Edinburgh and I use a Canon G12 with S&S YS110 strobe and an IST video light. Due to time and money restrictions I dont dive as much as I'd like to, but I make the best of our tricky local conditions. I like to snorkel and freedive locally and my favourite scuba spots are St Abbs and Eyemouth.
