Hello and welcome to TideGeist!
When I moved to New Zealand in 2005, I did not only fall in love with the land but also discovered a strong passion for its astonishing underwater world, which is often overlooked (Note that NZ’s land mass is 268,680 km² vs 4,300,000 km² ocean). Since then, I have used every opportunity to go diving and been unsuccessfully waiting for my captivation with the ocean to ease. It is fair to say that we are naturally drawn to the sea. It is a home from an ancient past and for many the only place where the mind can find rest.
My mission is to bring this world closer to others. The easiest way for me to do this is to share my underwater photography, which has won various awards including NZ Geographic – Wildlife Photographer of the Year (Winner (2011); Runner-up (2012)), 2012 Getty Images GrabNZ (Runner-up) and 2011 Underwaterfestival.org – ‘Compact video’ category (Winner), ‘Human’ category (Winner), ‘Big Stuff’ category (Runner-up).
I also enjoy organising trips and would love to hear from you if you would like to make the most of your spare time. Please like my facebook page if you want to receive updates and know what I am up to.
