  1. Hi all, I'm looking forward to trying out my new rig, but would love to go on a boat which is catered for photographers. Doesn't have to be overly serious, but someone who's able to position the boat in a decent manner to make it easier to try and get head on shots, or have a boat with fresh water etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, as at the moment we have the following ear marked, "On Isla Mujeres", due to the bigger boat and less of a propensity for sea sickness (yes, even the hardiest of sea scurveys get sick on these boats). Thanks!
  2. Hey Everyone, So i've decided to sell off some old gear so I can try and upgrade to new gear. I have a variety of things - so here we go: Equinox Canon t3i Kit General: I have a heavily used Equinox housing with the standard port for a Canon T3i. I am also including the Canon T3i (with two batteries and the charger) without a lens. I am unsure of the quantity of actuations on this camera, but it is quite low (i'm going to estimate approximately 10K). This system is not for a professional but rather for someone who is interested in getting into underwater photography and wants to learn. The system never flooded and is super easy to use! I am looking to sell it for $700 (housing + camera body) or Best Offer. If you are interested, please message me. Specifics: Equinox Housing for Canon T3i 1 Dome Port for standard 10-22mm lens Weighted handles to facilitate proper buoyancy and maneuverability Canon T3i 2 x Canon T3i Batteries Canon T3i Battery Charger OpenROV Kit General: I have a never used OpenROV system. This system comes with multiple sets of batteries (if I can figure out how to ship them) and two battery chargers. I also have a laminated set of instructions that I made that go along with the kit so you can operate the ROV. In addition, the OpenROV team sent me three additional propeller motors so I am going to throw them in as well. This system comes with a nicely maintained yellow pelican case so if you are into underwater exploration, this is a pretty cool piece of equipment. I am looking to sell it for $1000 or Best Offer. Cetacean Research Underwater Speaker and Hydrophone General: This is a random post but thought i'd see if there was any interest. About a year ago, I purchased an underwater hydrophone kit (SQ26-H1) to record whale and dolphin vocalizations and a lubell labs underwater professional speaker to reply these sounds (LL916H-025). This is a professional kit, but I never used this system and it is collecting dust. If you or someone you know may be interested in this, message me and I can give you all the details.
  3. hello all, I've always wanted to dive and photograph whale sharks. Can any one give me some recommendations on where to go and best time to go?
  4. I will be in French Polynesia next august. I hope to have the chance to take some picture of humpback whale in Moorea. Do you have any advice about companies who arrange whale watching snorkeling trips? Thank you
  5. Professional marine life photographer and naturalist Doug Perrine will be the guide / naturalist / photo pro for an expedition to swim with humpback whales in the Kingdom of Tonga, September 11-20, 2017. This is the breeding season for southern hemisphere humpbacks, and we can expect encounters with mothers and calves. Full trip details can be found at: http://www.oceanicsociety.org/expeditions/tonga-snorkeling-with-humpback-whales--72 All whale encounters will be conducted under permit and within Tongan law. Doug will share insights on the lives of whales gained over many years of assisting with whale research in Hawaii, and photographing whales around the world. He will also be available for personal photo help. Doug's photography has been published in magazines worldwide, including National Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Time, and hundreds of others. He is the author of seven books about marine life.
  6. Hi everyone, here's a post about the video that was on the front page recently. Shot in Ha'apai, Tonga with and Epic, GH4 and a GoPro 3+ Black. It was so much fun and the edit was done whilst still on the trip, so before I put it out in 4k I will likely re-compose it. Thanks for viewing:
  7. Hello Everyone, I wanted to share with you a film I recently made called Darwin's Dream. It was filmed in 5 short days of diving in the Galapagos Islands. I was fortunate enough to win the Bronze award in the Our World Underwater film competition. Any comments or suggestions are welcome. I hope you enjoy it!

  8. Join Mark Strickland and Douglas Hoffman on an incredible adventure dedicated to swimming with Southern Hemisphere Humpback Whales in Ha'apai Tonga. The dates are Sept 12-23, 2014. Includes 11 nights accommodation, 9 days whale swimming, lunch on the boat, & airport transfer to hotel. This is Douglas' 10th season organizing small groups dedicated to whale photography, and Marks fourth time co-hosting. Limited to five participants this is going to be an incredible expereince. We will not swim with every whale we see. Expereince has taught us to look for specific behaviors that might lead to extended interaction. We know that by being selective in which whales we swim with we could well be rewarded with swims that last for hours rather than seconds.... Please send an email to dhimages@maui.net if interested in joining this adventure. If not able to join in 2014 but are interested, there are sapces avaialbe for the 2015 season. Dates are Sept 4-14th, 2015.
  9. We have 3 spots left (1 male, 2 shared cabin) on the Rocio Del Mar live aboard for the February 15-23rd trip to Archipielago Revillgigedos (Socorro Islands). You must arrive in Cabo, Mexico on the 14th. Price of the trip is 3295USD. This trip was sold out, but 3 people had to drop out. This is a trip for advanced divers. Socorro is all about big animal diving; leave the macro lens and diopters at home! We expect to see giant Pacific manta rays, Silky Sharks, Hammer Heads (Great & Scalloped), Galapagos Sharks and White tipped reef sharks. Tigers have been seen occasionally. Additionally we expect to see dolphins, huge schools of jacks and giant tuna. We have chosen this time of year to go to Socorro (my 6th trip there) because we feel that it will give us the best opportunity to encounter humpbacks (and their calfs) on SCUBA (no guarantees :-).) If you are interested, please contact me and I will answer any questions you have regarding the trip. There is also a lot of information about the trip and the boat at www.rociodelmar.com. (some of my images from past trips are there also.) I would love to meet some new divers and share this incredible place with them.
  10. textile t and I (brothers) had the awesome experience to film a Great White Shark feeding while en route from Santa Cruz Island clean up dive. Youtube or Vimeo for your viewing enjoyment. This is a rare occasion, especially on the So Cal Coast. We were going to snorkel with the carcass and an 8 ft blue shark, until the big boy showed up. This shark probably had 10 feet on me, and we estimated the whale carcass to be about 30 feet, so you decided how big the shark was. Thanks for watching! Divers for the non profit group, Ocean Defenders Alliance, were treated to a surprise on the way home from two amazing clean up dives in the national marine sanctuary and national park of the Channel Islands near Ventura, Ca. A VERY LARGE GREAT WHITE SHARK was filmed by the group feeding on a juvenile dead Whale, approximately 30 feet long. Video from both above and below the waterline can be seen here: https://vimeo.com/75744010 In addition, Ocean Defenders Alliance (ODA) has a news worthy campaign itself. After securing tedious, but necessary, permits. ODA has been authorized to work within the National Marine Sanctuary of the Channel Islands National Park. ODA's mission is to remove abandoned "ghost" fishing gear that continues to fish once it's been lost. Volunteer divers protect their own backyard by diving to remove the debris. In a time when regulations restrict even the removal of trash and NPS is cutting staff, patrols, and budgets, ODA steps in to fill a much needed void to protect our oceans. More video is available of the efforts if needed. Thanks!
