    Certification Agencies:
    Padi
    Dive History:
    Sun Island, Maldives. Did my Padi Open Water there. Saw big manta rays on my first dives.

    Taba, Red Sea. Lots of turtles and clownfish. First tentative steps into photography.

    Vilamendhoo, Maldives. This place has the best house reef in the world, and as well as lots of small stuff, this was my first experience of being in the water with sharks. As well as black tips, Tawny Nurse, Whitetip reef, and whitetips, also got up close with a whale shark.

    Dahab, Red Sea. Great diving and snorkelling. A bit surreal having to walk past the gravestones and monuments to those who've died as you make your way into the water, but the water is beautiful and teaming with fishies.
    Certification History:
    Padi open water. Deep dive certified. Next up is getting my Nitrox Cert, and then Advanced Open Water.
    Certification Level:
    Padi Open Water
    # of Logged Dives:
    25 - 49
    Dive Classification:
    Just An "Average" Diver
    Years Certified:
    Two Years
    Dive Equipment:
    Own suit, fins and mask obviously. Not bothering with getting my own bcd and regs as its a lot to cart around on flights, especially when I have a Sea and Sea DX2G camera, mounted on to a custom bracket/tray, with a Gopro HD Vid camera (with eye of mine corrective housing) mounted on it.

    Just in the process of deciding whether to get the official sea and sea wide angle lens, or the uwl fix-04 fisheye.
    Rebreather Experience:
    Tried Scuba about three ears ago as a kill or cure or cure for my fears about being in the open ocean, and it worked.

    By chance my local dive shop was selling off a sea and sea dx1200 before a rip to the red sea, and I got the bug for underwater photography, despite the dx12 being prone to freezing, especially when turtles appeared, but luckily the nice man in the shop gave me a full refund. Got a sea and sea dx2, and have done two trips with it, 1 back to Dahab in the red sea, and another to a great place called Vilamendhoo in the Maldives. Going back out there in April.

    Bit of a fair weather/leisure diver at the moment as work gets in the way of life.
