|Photography||I have always been interested in photography which started
when I saved my pocket money and bought a Zenith E Camera. Over the years
I moved in and out of photography with no real commitment until I took
up Scuba Diving. It started with an impulse buy of a Nikonos 4A.
Another club member sold me a strobe and the photography bug rekindled.
I found that I was always using the Nik4A above and below water.
Things really changed again when I went digital with an Olympus C5050, a housing and a Sea & Sea YS90 Auto strobe. The kit is now replaced with a Canon 20 D and a Canon 350D in a Sea & Sea housing. It has taken some time to learn how to get the most out of the Canons as choice and selection of lenses for these cameras are somewhat critical to getting best quality.

|Diving||I took up diving in 1992 as a member of the Bristol Aerospace Sub Aqua Club, BSAC No 88. and progressed through the various diving qualifications to BSAC Advanced Diver. I have been lucky to dive in the Red Sea, Norway, Normandy, Rhode Island USA, the Great Barrier Reef and of course the UK|
