This shot was taken during this years annual sardine migration. I had removed my strobes due to the backscatter and forgot to add weight, i was sat on the surface whilst my friends were seeing an awesome ball below, i was lucky to nail this shot.

After not being spotted for some time, I am very happy to report that recently the Sodwana Bay Seahorse has been spotted again..and by the look of things, it might be pregnant!

On the 22.08.2015 my life changed forever and I was fortunate enough to dive with 3 of the oceans top apex predators, GW, Tigers and Zambezi's without any cages or restrictions! Here is one of the images.

Recently dived a newly discovered reef in Cape Town. The reef was fairly flat in topography, but interestingly had many Noble corals growing on it. Normally these are found on reefs with much more topography in our waters,
