Welcome to WetPixel. My wife and I have a place on Siesta Key so we enjoy coming down from NY a couple of times a year. Hoping to make that more frequently in a few years. Do you dive much in Sarasota or do you travel to other parts of Florida for your diving?

In Topic: UW photo gear in carry on - any no-no?

Similar to others, I was stopped for trying to carry on my wrench/spanner and Allen wrenches in Tel Aviv. Fortunately, I had enough time to go back out and check them in as luggage. I was rather annoyed though when they provided metal cutlery for the dinner service on the flight. I have to think the knife I was given was far more deadly than my Allen wrenches.

In Topic: BBC Natural History Request

To help clear this up for everyone, I spoke directly with the producer on the phone. It is exactly as what was inferred. The BBC NHU claim they have no budget for this. I even asked if they would pay only if they did in fact sell the series but I was told they don't have a budget for that either. I gave it a few days and responded that I appreciate them reaching out to me but I have decided to decline the request. I told them I felt it was sending a wrong message to give away my images and that I find it astonishing that the BBC would expect photographers to give their images away for free. The producer told me that some professional underwater photographers have given permission to use their images for free for this project.
