Terry Steeley

An active and passionate diver since 1997, it was not until the Spring of 2012 that I first took a DSLR camera into the water. Immediately hooked, I am no longer a diver. I am now an observer, and the oceans, rivers and lakes are my studio.

Raoul Caprez

I have started taking photos in 2005 in Malaysia with a small compact camera in one hand and a big torch in the other one ... good memories. After having used a Canon G9 (2008-2010) with satisfaction, I'm using now a Nikon D7000 with different lenses and two Subtronic pro160 strobes since April 2011.
