Hello,

I am Troy and live in Denver, CO.   I started diving two years ago and have 122 dives under my belt.    I have been fortunate enough to dive in Hawaii, Cozumel, Raja Ampat, and most recently the Solomon Islands.    I joined the site as I love taking underwater pics and have a lot to learn!    Looking forward to reading the posts and soaking up the wisdom on the site.

 

Troy

G'day everyone,

I'm Mark, from Melbourne, Australia. I've been diving since I was little, but since it's next stop Antarctica down here at the southern edge of the Antipodes, I've mostly saved my diving to trips much closer to the equator. Just sorted myself out with a drysuit recently though, and that's opened up a whole world of possibility for me, so looking forward to upping the frequency of my diving considerably now.

I'm pretty keen on underwater photography, and looking forward to picking people's brains on here.

Cheers

Hi, my name is Steve. I am an amateur photographer/videographer. Better now than when I started, but still learning as I go mostly through experimenting. Joined here to see if I can get some pointers. I shoot mainly with Canon products. Preferred subject is bigger animals such as sharks, turtles, rays, etc... Happy diving!

Hi, I'm Franco from Italy, I'm quite new as diver, but I'm keen in photography since a long time. Underwater photography is really difficult, but I'm sure that this forum can help me a lot. I currently use a Olympus tg-5 with housing and strobe. When I get better I'd like to move in a mirrorless system. 

Ciao/cheers

Hi, I'm Deanne. Underwater photography has been a passion of mine and I have several camera systems. I'd like to get in to underwater video, so I'm looking for ideas on technique and subject matter.

Hi, my name is Romain, I'm from France.

I do underwater photo & video.

 

For 3 years, I had a Sony RX100III in nauticam housing. The camera is now broken (not flooded) so I've just bought a GH5 with Nauticam housing.

 

I live in Marseille and I dive every week-ends in the Mediterranean Sea.

 

Take a look on my Facebook page : https://www.facebook...desirdeplongee/and my Youtube Channel : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMrDd8gm5FiH1pibSDpnDcA?view_as=subscriber

Greetings,

 

My name is Jonathan Crifasi, I am from Baton Rouge, LA and have recently moved to South Florida.  I have been here over two years now and one of the first things I did was get my OW certification along with a few advanced courses.  Then I put a camera in my hand... just a GoPro 5 at first but I mastered that quickly and am now beginning my ventures with a more professional rig.  I just got an Olympus E-M5 Mark II and some strobes and have some great plans once I master this camera in the underwater world.  I love the website and look forward to learning from the experienced divers here!

I'm a Canadian Diver, mostly diving the Caribbean / Bahamas these days. I'm thinking about finally acquiring some underwater gear; I've been taking photos on land for a long time.
