When I started diving at age 17, I was already an avid photographer. I shot mostly black and white film, since I could process it in my parents' basement. I can't say that I miss the stink of the chemicals, but there was something magical about watching an image materialize from nothing. Only months after my first dip below the waves, I bought a Nikonos III (basically a box with an o-ring) and a light-meter in a housing and set about wasting countless rolls of Kodachrome!
The images on these pages represent a few of my favorites made in recent years. I'll update them as new "faves" emerge but if any of them strike your fancy just let me know! It would be my pleasure to provide a print to you!
These days, I am shooting with an Aquatica-housed Nikon DSLR, a bag of lenses and a couple of Ikelite strobes. I count on this system, and it's never let me down.
Bespoke Photo Services
Allow me to tag along on one or more of your dives. I'll shoot you and provide edited, professional images of you and your buddy, suitable for framing, or social media, including your watermark. I even include a little "coaching" on how to look your best! You retain all copyright of course. Fees start at $200 + expenses
So often I see people post images that are "pretty good", but with just a little editing work, they could be transformed into great images. After a lifetime in graphic arts and photography, I have the tools and skills to bring your images to life. Rates begin at $8.00/image based on 10 images. Turnaround is typically 3 - 5 days.
No matter the sort of group, I welcome the opportunity to provide a high-energy, entertaining and informative presentation. Whether it's a dive group, photo club, school group or company retreat, please contact me well in advance as my time is sometimes limited.
Fees vary but generally, I am happy to come for expenses and a small "donation". You will need a suitable venue which can be darkened, as well as a high quality AV system.
And finally, if you are coming to Tobermory, we make our beloved "Squaller Holler" available to rent on a limited basis. If you would like more information about this, just message me and I"ll send you the link to our AirBnB page!
