He's got a real name (Paul Waghorn), but most people call him WAGS. Wags grew up in the wheat belt of Western Australia on a farm and worked in the mining industry for a few years before working in the dive industry in Cairns for 3.5 years. Eventually, he arrived in Exmouth on the Ningaloo Reef in 1995. In addition to being an SSI instructor, Wags works full-time in filming, editing, graphics, computers, websites, and e-commerce design. His underwater material has been on many local and overseas networks. Wags shoots with a Nikon D70 in a Sea & Sea housing, Sony HDV-FX1 in an Amphibico Phenom housing.

I think this forum thing is becoming addictive....I'm trying to work on a ecommerce site on the other computer and keep comming back to this one. :lol:

Yeh I've had that hat for years....

What that's Mike, you have a lump of lead sticky taped to your port?, least yours has not popped off yet :D

Cannot say what the secret callsign is. it's a secret and I'm bound by oath....

Hey Paul,
Welcome to the gang, looking forward to "working' with ya.

I've got a couple of questions posted to the editing forum seeing as I am more of a shooter and you seem to be the man in the know on that side side of things.

Hope all is well and things are running smooth down there.

Best,
Mark.
