RIP Marcus. Sincere condolences to his family. Marcus was a popular member of last summer's Wetpixel Oceanics trip in the Bahamas. He certainly had an eye for a great subject - I appear twice in one of his split level shots! I particularly remember some of the images he produced of the sharks right at the surface.

We discussed putting a front page post about his death to allow those who knew him to post their thoughts, but we heard that his family did not want the publicity at this horrible time. I think that a thread in the forums will be fine.

My condolences go out to the family and friends.
I also hope that those who had to witness his death are coping with it.
It is hard- a good friend of mine died 5 days after drowning and being resuscitated last month in Egypt.

Didn't know him but a shame to hear of his loss and the
loss of a young father and husband.
