I love DIVE magazine in its new incarnation, very different to all the other diving magazines out there, more like a photography focused coffee table book. So I was very please to see that they've used one of my silky shark photos on page 9 of the latest edition, albeit cropped and uncredited, to illustrate an article about the listing of these stunning but endangered animals under CITES Appendix II. Very pleased that they've finally been given some protection, very please to see the image published... continue reading

I prepared the camera except cutlery and approached the shark close at hand. I looked directly into the sharks mouth overgrown by prehistoric flounces while he watched my lens.Evidently... continue reading
On the ship we operationally changed the diving location. On the originally planned seemed to be little fish while the nearby locality had plenty of them.

We... continue reading
