UK members may have seen my picture in the Mirror, Metro and Sun newspapers. It's highly commended in the Shell Wildlife Phoographer of the Year this year.

Excellent work Gavin, congratulations.


I see there is a pigfish shot by Ross Armstrong in there as well. If he is a wetpixel reader, congratulations to him as well.
Why would I take a perfectly good camera underwater??
