“I am merely an observer of the marine environment, either with or without a camera. There is so much to see in this aquatic biosphere, and to understand the intricate relationships amongst its elements. The behavior, the diversity and the myth of the animals fascinate me immensely. I only wish I’d have more time to explore these wonders of our sea”
