I absolutely love underwater photography and have been teaching since 2019, when I completed my PADI training.
I also love shore diving, night diving and wrecks. I'm always keen to meet other photographers, so do get in touch if you fancy a local dive.
I am a freelance PADI Digital Underwater Photography Instructor and teach PADI Underwater Photography Level 1 & 2 when booked through an affiliated PADI Dive Centre. Please contact me for local recommendations on where to book your course.
I am also freelance PADI Divemaster, Dive Leader and Dive Guide, available for hire through local, affiliated PADI Dive Centres. I love being a Dive Guide and find it hugely rewarding showing other divers the underwater world.
