I started diving in my mid thirties but stopped after a few years for no particular reason . I then went on a family holiday to the Maldives in 2010 and rediscovered the reason I started diving in the first place . I immediately booked a livaboard back to the Maldives and was buddied up with someone who had a camera . That was it ! I bought a Canon G11 and started taking underwater pics . I soon got frustrated with a compact and upgraded to a Nikon D7000 . When not diving I drive a taxi in London .
