Hi - my name's Toby - I'm a "mature" marine biology student studying at Unversity of Wales Swansea.

Still shooting on wet film - have an assortment of housed SLRs and a NikV

Thinking about switching over to the digital dark side so I thought I'd join the fun and learn a thing or two while I'm at it

  • Interests:I'm student of biology, will have my degree in two weeks (I hope). Have special interest in marine biology, so that I did my thesis about the segrass Posidonia oceanica in Nature park Telascica in the Adriatic. <br />I've been dealing with photograpy since I remembre, but only year ago started with UW photograpy. My dream as a child has always been to work for BBC as an underwater camerman. :D<br />But I would be very happy just to work in Natural history museum, working on marine biology and with kids.

Well hello to everyone!

I'm Buga. At the time I'm still the biology student, but in a week or so, I'll be real biologist, with degree :)
I live in Croatia, inZagreb, but am moving to Rijeka, which is on the Adriatic coast. I've been diving for two years now, only in the Adriatic so far. Year ago I got my first UW housing for my olympus C-765. Nothing special, but it works great for a beginner like me. Now I'm waiting for my first strobe to come from States with my brother, so I hope to switch on some serious photography soon. :)

Since I remembre, I was in love with sea :) , so biology, then diving and the photography in the end, came just as an natural thing. I'm not so lucky to travel around, since can't afford it, but in the Adriatic there are some great sites - caves, walls, seagrass meadows, wrecks.... really everything.

So, this is from me for now :D
