Underwater photography and studying marine life is my great passion and sharing it with other people equally so”.

I have been blessed with an incredible journey over the last 30 years where amazing dive experiences, encompassing the world, have left an everlasting appreciation and respect for marine life. Photography has always been my medium of choice. But it’s the marine life experiences that I cherish, because I feel a personal connection during my encounters. The small marine critters featured in my photos have their own special characters. I feel they find me as much as I find them which l acknowledge with gratitude.

It is with great pleasure that I share my marine life knowledge and u/w photography skills to help others gather their own experiences and appreciate how beautiful and special our underwater world is.

I am an ardent marine conservationist and regularly highlight global and local issues on my facebook and twitter pages. I am a founder member of a new CORALL alliance in Barbados. CORALL was set up to conserve and restore the local coral reef ecosystems.

INON Courses Private Tuition

On the beautiful island of Barbados I provide a number of services and courses designed to enhance your holiday experience and further your photography.

For keen underwater photographers I teach the certified INON level 1 u/w photography course at my Barbados Underwater Photography Academy (BUPA)

I also offer specialised private daily or hourly  u/w photography tuition designed to suit your particular needs. This is a good option if you need help with something in particular. I can work with many camera models including GoPros. I can accompany you on a dive of your choice pointing out various subjects depending on what you are looking for or just pointing out what I see.

If you can’t dive but would like to see some of the wonderful marine life on Barbados then a snorkelling trip might suit you. My popular guided safaris to see seahorses, turtles, rays, octopus, frogfish and lots of other critters are unique and will leave you with unforgettable memories. View more details here.

Coming soon – Join me on a  guided photography holiday to Barbados, where I have a second home. This means you pay for my services not my holiday! I will be working with top end accredited travel agents who specialise in photography focused trips.
