Each spring, Ras Mohammed on the southernmost tip of Egypt's Sinai desert attracts huge school of fish. Located on the confluence of the Gulfs of Suez and Aquaba, it is a place where pretty much anything can happen...
Here a photographer shoots a school of Bohar snapper (Lutjanus bohar).

Diving with the rookery of grey seals (Halichoerus grypus) at the UK's Farne Islands is amazing! The seals are incredible interactive and chose to engage and interact with us clumsy humans...

A Pedersen cleaner shrimp dances on the Something Special dive site, Bonaire. A site where I could happily spend all day with a snoot and a 105mm lens - and my partner claims I do.

Some specialities from Sydney Australia, I usually head out with Abyss Scuba Diving they run boat and shore dives based around Botany Bay and off shore reefs accessible from there.


Giant Cuttlefish at a reef offshore from Sydney's Eastern Suburbs


Weedy Sea Dragon on a site just inside the north head of Sydney Harbour.  Found all around the southern coastline of Australia, Sydney is a great spot to find weedies.


Port Jackson sharks appear on Sydney dive sites in the winter when they come close inshore to breed.  This one is at Oak Park at Cronulla south of Sydney, it's a shore dive on an ocean beach that is sheltered by a headland to the south.


Eastern Blue Groper, actually a type of wrasse, these are 1m long blue puppy dogs who will follow you on a dive making close passes - some divers feed them sea urchins and they are hoping for a handout.  This is on a shore dive from Bare Island a popular dive site just inside the heads of Botany Bay.
