I am at sea until mid-September with limited internet access. It is likely I will be unable to keep up to date with notifications. If it's important please send a direct message so it doesn't get lost in my notification backlog.

Originally from the UK, I have spent most of my life working overseas in the diving industry. I am a dive instructor and I'm currently based on Grand Cayman working for Indepth Watersports. I do all kinds of diving but my particular areas of interest are technical diving, underwater photography and muck diving (searching for tiny, unusual critters). For many years I worked around SE Asia but I've been in the Caribbean since COVID.
I'm most interested in marine invertebrates, especially nudibranchs and other sea slugs.

I dive with an Olympus OMD EM5 Mk1 in a Nauticam housing and Sea&Sea strobe. Most of my older underwater observations were taken with an Olympus TG4/TG6 with a single Ikelite strobe.

I enjoy trying to record as many different species as I can. Most of my observations are of marine life but I've been trying to record more terrestrial life with my Lumix GH4.
