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.

Watching this school of neon fusiliers being hunted by bluefin jack and dogtooth tunas was like watching NatGeo on TV, just better. To catch the movement I used a long shutter speed of 1/10th sec

Chill out! There was so much action going on around this lazy green turtle: squadrons of bluefin jack attacking the carpet of glass fish , tunas looking for an easy meal, anthias buzzing.

Nurse sharks at sunset, they approach the reef in search of some waste fish thrown by fishermen. This is the right time to approach them by taking some special photographs

This is one of my favorite photographs I've taken underwater. This painted lobster caught my eye. The whole scene was just perfect. The natural frame from the fan corals just makes everything pop! (ps. check out his afro) :P
