Started reading this thread, and from the first post I qualify as a dive pro.

 

My name is Richard Huntrods, but have been using 'sunnyboy' on numerous dive forums for many years. Originally from Calgary, now living on Vancouver Island near Nanaimo.

 

I've been a SCUBA instructor since 2010, first with SDI and now with PADI. Our dive shop scheduled the Digital Underwater Photographer course a couple of times, but have not run it yet.

 

I've been taking photos since I was a kid (Kodak box camera, then Roliflex twin lens), but moved to SLR in 1974 when I bought a Voitlander. Since then many varieties of Canon SLR, plus several odd and unique film cameras. Started with digital in 2000 with a Kodak model (one of the first), then a Nikon and finally a Canon DLSR.

 

I started taking underwater photos in fall 2003 with a Sealife unit, then bought an Ikelite housing for a Canon A570IS, which I used until a few years ago when I upgraded to a G16 system. Lately I've become a total newbie again when I bought a Canon 7D and Nauticam housing. Diving with a DLSR is more like "a camera diving with a diver attached" than my previous rigs, which were definitely "Diver carrying a camera".

 

I tend to take a camera on 99% of my dives, because whenever I don't take the camera I regret it. :-)

 

I also take some go-pro (clone) video when scootering, but our visibility has been so bad lately that it's all pretty much just ... green.

My name is Josie) Nice to to meet you.

I joined this forum to find tips and knowledge in the area of photography.

My story started with one wedding retouching company where a friend of mine is working now. I had some practise there. Soon I became a retoucher. But I was so inspired with one order so I could`t stand any more. Since then I decided to become photographer. I whant to develop my skills. And this is the reason why I am here. I joined to connect with other photographers and get honest feedback on photographs.

Thanks for reading. See you)

Hello, my name is Javier and I've been diving for 12 years, now with canon 5d III and seacam, but now I'm switching to Olympus because of its low weight and size,

 

Regards and good dive

Hey pals,

 

Yang here from Singapore/UK, I'm a dive pro usually working out of Komodo National Park. I've done a fair bit of land based photography, sometimes professionally (mostly fashion/events as actual paid work), and other times for fun (mostly nature or landscape). I've just acquired an underwater set-up for my Sony A7Rii so looking forward to combining the two in the near future. When I'm not diving or taking photos I'm a professional yacht racer around Europe and Asia. 

Best 

Yang

Have been photographing for a number of years. Just trying to break into underwater photography. Seems very challenging. I also do not scuba dive. Only snorkeling.

Aloha All!

I'm RJ Kessler, a non-soliciting professional photographer/videographer. After many years of not shooting underwater I have reentered the deep blue.

I'm looking forward to admiring your publications, collaborating, discussing equipment and networking.

Have a great New Year and keep the shutter clicking!
