A young man's images

Recommended Posts

Christopher (CJ) has been diving since he was seven and took up with my old 8000G in 2008. This summer, when he was eleven years old, he was shooting with his own G9 with a suite of INON glass and strobes. Here are the results of his endeavours, taken on safari at St Johns and the Fury in the southern Red Sea.

We'll both be at 'Visions' in November and I know CJ would appreciate meeting some fellow WP's.

Hey CJ,

 

Fantastic photos, well done. You should be very proud of those. I will be in the Red Sea next hope to get some pics half as good as yours. Keep it up. Take care.

11 years old?! Clearly CJ has an aesthetic eye and a real talent. His composition and lighting look like the work of an experienced photographer. Not to mention diving at such a young age. Congratulations are in order.

Wow, chaps. My chest has grown another couple of inches. On behalf of CJ, thank you for your generous words of praise and encouragement. His photography, especially his underwater photography, means a lot to him and your kind words will be all the endorsement he could wish for. When he is by my side later this week I know he'll want to post himself. Until then.

Thats my boy! He wasn't fazed in the slightest and even took a snap of the longimanus chewing on his fin... Here's my photo of almost the same moment. Yup, its a very small world :(

Hello everyone. Thank you for the very nice things you said about my photos.

 

Ripli thank you for showing me your photo. Isn't it amazing we should meet then and again on Wetpixel. Isn't Wetpixel the best!

 

I'm really looking forward to going to Visions in the Sea with Dad next weekend. See you there :-)
