I actually saw him this evening in London. He said his website was taking on 'ell of a beating from all the traffic generated by the coverage.
I'd like to steal a bit of his thunder by adding that it was my lens that took the first picture in the portfolio and also I actually appear in photo number 7 (on the left - I can spot my chunky silhouette anywhere).
But seriously, this is amazing exposure for JP and also for underwater photography in general. Fantastique.

Almost 51,000 hits so far, all typed in the URL box because there was no hyperlink on the BBC gallery. I'm enjoying my 24 hours of fame !
I've had quite a few requests for interviews, images, etc, including an "inspirational talk" at a schools for problematic kids in the US. A lot of people emailed me to say it was really nice to have a sneak preview at the underwater world. Looks like the world is craving for underwater images ! ... hint... hint...
I think I'd better get some new pics. I've seen my current ones too much now... Alex, any room on the boat next week ?
