    Stephen, which gear do you use to do the underwater photography?? My aim is someday do photos like yours but I know that I will need a housing for my camera and that not cheap. your pictures brings that feeling when we are diving. it’s a strong work you have.

  • Thanks Jennifer for your question about my gear

    I use a Nikon D200 in an aquatica housing.

    I have two sets ups that I use

    1. wide angle, using a dome (curved) port on the front of the camera and a 10.5mm fish eye lens,
    2. macro with a flat port with a 105mm macro lens.

    I also have two YS110 strobes made by sea and sea. All up this represents several thousand dollars worth of gear, but I try not to think about that too much! There are also much cheaper options available and some of the other underwater photographers on this site are producing some fantastic images using much cheaper equipment.
