Hi all. My name is Dale, Im from Brisbane Australia. I have been diving for around 10 years and have finally decided to get a bit more serious about underwater photography. Recently bought a Canon Ixus 980Is and an Ikelite housing. Wanted to get a housing for my 450D but decided the smaller camera is easier for travelling.

Topside I have always been keen on photography and have done several workshops with the 450D, love diving, love photography and here I am in a great place surrounded by many experienced people. Thanks for having me.

Hey Dale. There's a few uw photographers around Brissy/Goldie/Byron, some of whom are quite good. I used to live down there (and most likely will end up back there eventually), and as you know, there's some great diving in the area!

Thanks guys for the warm welcome. Love living around Brisbane, and you are right about alot of great spots for a quick dive. Its quite handy to just load up the car, pick north or south and drive an hour to some really great spots. I grew up in Bundaberg, so was always in the water, as much as I like going out on boats its nice and easy to go to any number of spots within an hours drive and walk straight in off the shore.

Once again, Thanks
