My wife, Sally, and I both hold PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certifications and have been lucky enough to experience a wide range of diving in and around Perth and Rottnest Is, the HMAS Swan (Busselton) and Exmouth, along with several overseas locations; such as the shipwrecks of Chuuk Lagoon (Micronesia), Tulamben (Bali) and Vanuatu.

We have travelled to Steamboat Springs (Colorado), Crested Butte (Colorado), Japan (Shiga Kogan, Kiroro, and Furano), Banff (Canada), Sun Peaks (Canada), Mt Hutt (New Zealand), and Mont Tremblant (Canada) skiing.

Camera Equipment

The underwater pictures were taken using a Sea & Sea MX-10 with YS-40A strobe, close up and macro lenses. The land shots were taken with either my Sony A550 DSLR with either a 18-250mm or 70-400mm Lense. I also use a Sony Cybershot for the panoramic pictures and some of the action shots because it is small and easy to carry.
