Keep your fingers off!All images presented on my site are taken "as is". That means: as little interference with animals or plants as possible. I didn't move or re-position any of my "models". They're all in their natural environment as I spotted them. I took special care to keep off any "bystanders" to minimize the impact to the environment. No digging into the ground, sitting/standing on corals or the like. I missed quite a lot of chances for "a good photo" due to this behaviour. It's simply not fair to manipulate and disturb the environment this way. Please, stick to some ethics when diving or taking photos too. Thanks.

I bought myself an Olympus E-1. It's currently going to be housed. For more information about it see my pages on UW-housings. All pictures before 2005 are taken with an Olympus E-20 and HLX video lights.
