Hi There and Welcome!I hope you enjoy my photos as much as I have enjoyed taking them. I’m born & raised in Melbourne, Australia and have always lived close to the sea. As such it has a great attraction for me and I was perhaps inevitably drawn to scuba diving. The bulk of my diving is done in nearby Port Phillip and Westernport Bays. I love showing people the amazing marine diversity that these southern temperate waters support. Most people, including locals, don’t have a clue of the treasures under the surface here. For this reason I took up underwater photography in early 2007. I currently capture images with a Nikon D90 in a Nexus housing with Inon Z240 strobes. My Underwater photostream on Flickr
Since taking up DSLR photography I have learned to crawl out of the water to capture images of the local flora and fauna on land. Most of those images will be of birds, a very challenging but rewarding subject. My Abovewater photostream on Flickr
Please note that although I try to be accurate when naming the animals and plants I find, I am not a professional taxonomist and if you have any corrections I’d be delighted to hear from you.If you see an image on my Flickr photosteams you’d like to purchase on RedBubble let me know and I’ll upload it for you.
