Nick and Caroline will announce the new SSI
underwater photography and videography course structures and ethos to the public for the very first time at DIVE 2017
. These new courses are in the final stages of development and will be launched in early 2018.
If you want to know more then pop along to the SSI / Mares stand at 2pm on either the Saturday or Sunday.
We are members of the Northern Underwater Photography Group
(NUPG) and each month they have a competition with a different theme. It is a great way to get you to look through your image library to find something to fit the particular theme. This month is was "Unedited" and so we dug out some images that we liked straight from the camera. No Cropping, no adjustments to contrast or colour, no spot removal.
Giant Mantas in Socorro, manatees in Crystal River in Florida, Seals in the Farne Islands, Sea Lions in Mexico and South Africa - we have had some incredible encounters over recent years. This articles tells the stories of our favourite encounters and will form the basis of our talk at the Dive Show too. I am very lucky that I always have Nick at my side to photograph these wonderful moments.
We are speaking at DIVE 2017
again this year and our talk will be about wide-angle photography and how it can tell as story. We will talk about some of our most memorable underwater encounters and how we got the shots that we use in our photo-journalism for magazines and the wider press.
Nick and Caroline were delighted to attend the opening of this new exhibition at The Atkinson
that features images and displays all about the local coastline. Their work features images of marine life that can be found in this region, from sharks and seals to tiny nudibranchs.

Those of you that follow our work will know that we love to spend a little bit of time above water on our travels abroad, and especially love to visit vineyards and sample the wines that benefit from being close to the coast. So we were delighted to discover that we had been invited to visit Gozo, and that there was a local tasting available for us to attend. We had two days of diving on our short visit, and a day to absorb the local culture above the water. We dived with Calypso Diving Centre
, visiting caves, reefs and wrecks doing both boat and shore dives. The vineyard we visited was the Tal-Massar Winery
which offers a series of lovingly made wines.

We are off to Cornwall for some scuba festivities at the Cornwall Scubafest
over the bank holiday weekend. Whilst it is a long drive from Manchester, it is always a good event. We have our fingers firmly crossed for good weather, so that we can make the most of our long weekend. So what's the plan?
