In Topic: Jim Watt passed away peacefully yesterday

As destiny might have it I had the privilege and good fortune to spend some time with Jim and dive with him for the first time in Bonaire several weeks ago. I follow in the trail of so many photographers who have become inspired by his work. When I heard that Jim would be teaching seminars in Bonaire along with his good friends Berkley White and Eric Cheng I knew it would be a tremendous opportunity to gain additional knowledge from the master who helped pioneer the technique of split image photography. Jim was not only the consummate artist behind the lens he also had the generosity to share his knowledge with others. This can only come from the heart. I am grateful to have spent what little time there was with him and from the knowledge he bestowed. I felt touched.
