Being born on a little island in the Mediterranean, Malta, I guess it was just a natural progression to connect with the sea which I did willingly at a very early age. I have been working as a marine photographer for over 20 years, capturing moments of how we interact with mother nature.
Having switched to a digital system a few years ago one thing I certainly learnt is that electronics and saltwater are not the best of friends. Having said that I can honestly say that my equipment has never let me down !
My choices of bodies and lenses change depending on what I am shooting. I personally like feel that they are just an extension of what i am seeing and being able to capture that moment without thinking too much.
One thing always sticks in my mind from my early underwater shooting days. I had read an article with a title: “If you dont have a good sense of humour, dont take up underwater photography”!
In my bags :
Only a few hours left to claim!!
The 400mm is a challenging lens to use simply because it weighs a lot and one cannot use a monopod on the water – however I love using it.
On the road …
Leica – I have been fond of the cameras for quite a while – My latest M goes with me most places. My favourite lens would be the Noctilux.
List of equipment in the bags:
Memory cards SanDisk and Lexar
Sadly a huge about of cables / chargers (wish someone could up with one charger that charges all …. )
