new blog photo

This shot was during a Mauritius Tourist Board shoot and the diver was a specialist collector of very rare poisonous tropical fish for medical research. Not that my model was at all poisonous certainly rare.
Hasselblad SWC. camera. We abandoned the shoot quickly as Hammerhead sharks came up to investigate from the depths.

Best in the World

My first blog for anyone that's interested. My father said "Son, blow your own trumpet, because no one else will do it for you." So modest as ever I went on to win the CMAS. Confederation Mondaile Subaquatic and held it for 3 years. Mark you I had started earning money from photography at 12 and at 16 was the youngest ever photographer in London's Fleet Street. Covering all the normal press stories but soon photographing all over the world, from stars of film, Royals and leaders of nations. I was attached to the British Royal Family as an accredited Rota photographer and was commissioned by the Jordanian Royal Family for several years. Went into advertising and gained clients as diverse as Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Jaguar, Ford etc., Several Tourist Boards who liked my approach to underwater photography.

Have a large presence on under various titles and of course:
