Congratulations JP! That is awesome.

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). :P

But seriously, this is amazing exposure for JP and also for underwater photography in general. Fantastique.

Thanks guys !

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 ?

You are Italy too. I know too many Italian girls (I heard this from none of the two you'd expect):

I am not going to answer that here, JP.

But congrats all the same. Let us know if the story is being picked up in other places too.
