Delighted to have made the cover of Scuba Magazine, the new monthly magazine for BSAC members, I have an article inside showing the dramatic North Wall dive off Rathlin Island in Northern Ireland. 200 meters straight down. Beautiful spot.

Do you know what they pay for a cover?

I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?

200 meters straight down. Beautiful spot.

My days of such deep diving are over but your subject looks very under equipped for a 200m dive! :)
