I started taking underwater images around 2002, but only really started getting serious 8 later after visiting Indonesia and seeing the incredible marine life underwater.
People told me I was good at telling stories of my underwater adventures, so I started writing about them and have now been a major feature writer for UK’s Diver magazine and www.divernet.com since 2011, having over 60 major feature articles published with supporting images. Over the years I have written for various other publications and contributed to several books. My underwater photos and articles have appeared in The Daily Mail and The Times newspapers.
In 2012, I started a company distributing INON products in the UK, one of the top manufacturers of underwater photography equipment. INON Japan regularly ask me to test prototype or brand new equipment on the many underwater photography trips I take. I am very proud that my photos appear in their product brochures and on their website.
I taught my own underwater photography course, which INON Japan put their name to, as well as running underwater photography workshops worldwide.
In 2019, I moved to the Cayman Islands, working as a full time underwater photography instructor at a well know photography company, as well as continuing my work with INON UK. In July 2022, I branched out on my own, setting up www.capturecayman.com, offering all types of photography, including teaching land and underwater photography, photo editing, and private photo dive guiding. Over the years I have work with a wide range of cameras, housings and strobes, building up a wealth of experience. My students range from total beginners to very advanced professional photographers.
Indonesia has always been a favourite destination of mine for underwater photography, with so many photogenic subjects. My visits to Indonesia and Siladen never fail to inspire me to take better and better photos and show my passion for the underwater world.
