Hi everyone,

I'm a marine scientist working on coral reefs, and just starting to get really into underwater photography - joined this forum after being recommended by a friend. Hoping to find some good deals on underwater camera/housing combos (SLRs, preferably with Nauticam or Aquatica housing) , so feel free to message me if you think what you're selling might interest me!

Cheers,

Nick

Hello. I am from Toronto, Canada.  I have some experience in UW macro videography through attending an UW Macro Videography Workshop in Lembeh, Indonesia,  but I would like to do more wide angle videography.

I was trying to find some unbiased information about video lighting and had very difficult time until I came across this forum.  I hope to get a lot of useful information and share my experience through this site.

Hi,

 

I'm new to UW photography. I have a broad experience in diving up to Trimix Rebreather level and a lot of experience with normal photography. Now the challenge is to combine both and get good results (I already noticed how steep the challenge is :-) )

 

Regards,

Daniel

Hi

 

I'm James Laver from Swindon,  UK.  I've been diving for 40 years - rebreathers for the last 17 - still alive and loving it.  I began shooting UW 35mm stills in Oman with a Uwe Kiehl housing and ringflash. More recently I've moved towards video now that the technology provides the ease of use and quality. Having LED TVs makes it worthwhile too!!  I dive an AP Inspiration Evo rebreather and am qualified to BSAC AI (1719) and TDI Mod II trimix on the RB.  One of my photos is on the cover of BSAC's Manual for the Inspiration rebreather.  My most memorable dives have been the Dahab blue hole with 7 other RBs on trimix as well as Thomas Canyon.  My most recent diving was in Gozo in March/April 2017.  I film using a GH5 in a Nauticam housing with the Olympus 7-12mm Zuiko.  I do a lot of solo shore diving and use a Bonex Reference RS to pull me around safely.

 

In case anyones in any doubt - diving a rebreather is a great advantage when filming underwater. I've had Dolphins sonar beam me knowing that something was different. I'm forever getting closer to sea life than is possible with open circuit.  Its why Howard Hall dives a BioMarine MK15.5 (one of the classics).

 

Upfront thanks to all the esteemed forum members who have contributed to it and who are the foundation of an ever burgeoning community that I hope will help to preserve our Oceans.

 

Cheers to all,

 

James

Hi, I am José, from Granada (Spain). Just heard from this group and decided to join.

I currently shoot an Olympus omd-em1 with an aquatica housing. Lenses Zuiko 60 mm, zuiko 12-40 pro and Panasonic 7-14. 2 Inon z240 flashes and a +15 lens.

Thanks for sharing so much knowledge with the newcomers.
