Whom have you met from Wetpixel?

Recommended Posts

can we get wetpixel speedos ..... that would be hilarious .. a pair of speedos that say wet pixel on it .... ha ha ha

 

that would mean settling on a logo, well has wetpixel ever had a logo .. i mean i think most people thought the diver pic was a logo but it was really just a top banner title bar ...

Hi Alex,

 

I got the D70 last May and yesterday I got the CD70 sealux housing. I'm still very excited about it.

 

And the best ..... next Monday I'm off to Turks & Caicos to flash everything that is moving under water. :D

 

I like the idea with the caps and the "wetpixel.com" logo. Need to find a company who does custom caps <_<

 

See you folks soon.

 

Chris

My list just got updated:

 

have dived with

 

James Wiseman

Alex Mustard

Lucinda Hoffman (Arctic Mermaid)

Stephen Frink

John (carib-blu)

 

but this is still the case ...

 

and more than likely a few others having worked at Fisheye of Cayman .. infact a lot of names are familiar when i see them .. but all i mostly see on here is usernames. I do remember people coming up to me when diving with me and saying they had seen my posts on here. But those are the guys i dived with and know the names.

Aurabest,

john

Haven't met anyone in person from wetpixel :oops:

Guess I'm located a bit far from where most of you are lurking (down here in the land-downunder). As far as I can tell there aren't too many of us.

I gather whitey comes from the land of Aus in the sandgroper state, but that's about it.

If you're ever in Melbourne, drop me a PM  :D

 

Anthp and I caught up and did lunch recently when I was in Melbourne for a friend's wedding.

 

Here's a shot of us at at a photo exhibition in Federation Square. It's a strange and deceptive camera angle, Anthp is much taller in real life. :D

 

We didn't get out for a dive this time - I'll blame the short time I had available, but it's really that I'm far too soft after a couple of years living in the Northwest for cold water diving. I'm psyching myself up for next time...

Hey Whitey!

 

Wondered what had happened to you after that wedding. Thought you'd disappeared during the ceremony, or run off with the bride or something :D

 

And yes, I really am MUCH taller than that, must be bloody parallax or something!

 

Oh and before you come down next time, i'll warm up a patch of water for you :D

 

You should add that Zeiss glass to your signature too!

Yesterday on a dive charter out of Anacortes, WA started talking to a fellow diver with a F5 in a Seacam housing, John. Turns out he is a fellow Wetpixelian, small world. Oh and met Kelpfish and his wife last year in Roatan.

Today I was diving the house reef at Sunset House in Grand Cayman. On the way back ... this guy starts free diving down to me ... like right in front of my face almost ... I am thinking ... who is this freak at first. I mean it wasn't deep but there was no reason to get that close and then look at me !!

 

About the third time I saw him freedive down I started thinking hey I know this guy ... but i don't know him ... I had no name going through my head and I normally remember names fairly well, so i got confused.(not an abnormal occurance)

Anyways I finished my dive thinking not much more of it but a vaigue thought of wetpixel, which flashed through my head and then went as I thought ... nope none of the guys I know from Wetpixel.

 

So anyways long story short .. the freak freediving around me was at the rinse tank when i got out and we said hello ... today I met another wetpixeler briefly David Haas and was quite relieved to know I wasn't imagining things when I thought I recognised him and I am thinking from recent Dema photos but can't remember. Apparently the long blonde hair and D60 made me unreconiseable ... is this a good thing? anyways .. good to meet you David .. hope you enjoyed your short mistake of a trip to Grand Cayman :(

 

(ps wished I took a photo of the crazy freediver now)

That's correct, from Giles's previous posts I recognized his true "warm water" dive guide outfit. Surfing baggie swim trunks, simple tank set up, full foot Scubapro Twin Jets (I use 'em too) and of course his Sea and Sea D60 housing and strobe.

 

 

I was on Cayman Brac the week prior, and a friend and I got bumped and of course gained a free return ticket via Cayman Airways for our troubles plus Marriott lodging, food, blah, blah, blah.... Had the carry-ons with my RX mask, went and bought t-shirts, and swim suit for the day. No housing , though...

 

In Houston remotely, home tomorrow morning to Ohio then back out Dec. 3-10.

 

Next time I will have to show Giles this old man can still free dive a respectable 30' or so :(

 

You just never know who you'll meet these days traveling about........

 

dhaas

 

P.S. Used the Magic Filter on my Canon 10-22mm / Rebel XT while on the Brac and was pretty pleased. Great tool and thanks to Alex and Peter for inventing this!!

To add to an old convorsation:

 

I got in touch with Mauricio Handler/handlerphoto (http://www.handlerphoto.com) through Chip Scarlett (don't know if he's a member...http://www.pbase.com/chipscar) whom i met on the Belize Aggressor with Howard and Michele Hall.

 

Mauricio came to my school and gave a very nice presentation and had a show in the art gallery.

Last July I met Stephen Frink in Key Largo and we talked about photography and the Spiegel Grove. He was the first to photograph it when it came upright after the hurricane, I was the first to dive with a regular operation. By the way, CNN is running a story about it today (not about our meeting, about the Spiegel being upright :D ).

 

Last October I met James Wood in Bermuda. I had a great time there, but James was very busy with his class and we couldn't dive together. One more reason to come back!

 

I hope I can meet more people next year!

I met Drew (aka scubadru) last week while he had his brief stop in Bangkok.

Still drool over his Sardine run video and dolphins photos!

Of course I have also met a couple of other wetpixlers who reside in Bangkok: Whitehead and theHamburger!

 

In February, hopefully I will meet Mike V when I am in Yap!
