My first DIVE Magazine front cover!
This image was taken between St Abbs and Coldingham in Scotland, in one of my favourite diving spots around the British isles. St Abbs and the marine reserve are the scene ofto the annual Splash-In competition that takes place on the August Bank holiday weekend. Billy and Alison Aitchison at Rock House B&B were our hosts for the weekend and we were diving from Billy’s charter vessel Alikai.
Exciting news! My pufferfish picture will feature on the DAN Europe Membership card. It also made the front cover of the Mag!
I have been a member of DAN (Divers Alert Network) for a number of years now and would not want to travel overseas or even dive in home waters without knowing that they’re always available, should I ever need their services after a diving accident.
They offer reasonably priced insurance coverwhich extends to non-diving activity and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
My Great Escape won the Theme Portfolio competition at the BSoUP meeting in March. It is also generating an interesting discussion on whether this kind of Photoshop manipulation should be allowed when entering a portfolio of 6 images for competitions.
DIVE RED SEA by my friends Simon Rogerson and John McIntyre has been launched. I’m really excited to see the book out after being asked to provide images for the project. Other photographers involved with the book were Alex Mustard, Charles Hood, Jane Morgan and Malcolm Nobbs.
DIVE RED SEA is now available in France under the title Plongées en mer Rouge
