"It may sound strange to some, but I need to talk to the subject when I’m shooting, in my own way and with my own voice.
"What excites me most is the fact we still have dedicated photographers that want to get out into this crazy world we live in - that seems to be getting crazier every moment."
"I think naturally I might view things in a little bit of a different way but I also know when it comes to editing to try to differ from any sort of trends that might be going on."
"I am a technical photographer and love finding ways around the inherent restrictions imposed by the underwater environment and the fact that I only shoot on one breath is key to my photography."
