About me


love to scuba dive in my spare time here in Cornwall (UK) and have been since 2011 after moving down from Gloucestershire. To help me identify what I see I decided to purchase a basic underwater camera so I can look things up above the water over a glass a wine. I can then share the pictures with details about the subject to friends on social media (which is also helpful to ask others to identify something that I cannot find).

As of November 2017 I have decided to go self-employed with photography and creating fused glass art pieces. I hope to learn lots and have some interesting photos to publish here.
