First of all it is important to note that age brings a great deal of wisdom to most activities. The slightly older diver tends to be one full of adventure and experience. The Geriatric Diver also known as Terry has vast tales of trips abroad, travel antics, scuba quests and trial and error escapades.
Photography is by no means easy to master especially under water with current, light, moving models and nature throwing unpredictable scenarios at you.
Terry, along with his partner in crime explores the World enjoying all that travel has to offer. Long hauls flights, mad transfers and transits, foreign languages and traditions and most importantly, incredible dives. The thrill seeker diver looks for less human impacted, protected, abundant sites to try to see the marine World at its best. The vision is not always to spot the big stuff, the whales and mantas as stunning as they are but to spot the macro and unusual.
Terry has mastered his spotting skills and fine tuned his photography and creative ability to capture nature and more importantly memories of his adventures.
Some people will never dive, some will never be interested or concerned with what lies beneath but for those of us that are, other peoples photography inspires us and moves us. A teeney tiny, beautifully formed nudi branc to one might be everyday and dull but to another might be the very creature that gets them excited.
Post dive scrolls through fish ID books and species cards are a wonderful part of the fun. What did I just see? What on earth was that and how totally awesome to have the opportunity to see it.
We will follow The Geriatric Diver with nothing less than eagerness and excitement to see what he finds next.
