Dive Safety OfficerI graduated from Plymouth College of Art and Design in 2000 where I specialised in fine art landscape photography. On completion of my course I was offered an exhibition through a fine art photography gallery in Cornwall. I continued to work with the gallery both selling my own work and as their exhibition co-ordinator and manager. I curated a number of leading photographers exhibitions including works by Man Ray, Terry O'Neil, Martin Parr and several collections of local photographers work.
Whilst at PCAD I also had a chance to use underwater 35mm cameras and completed a number of trips abroad as part of the course. With a love of wildlife, diving and photography combined I was hooked.
I started working for Falmouth University on a part time basis in the photography stores in 2005 but progressed to full time when the Marine and Natural History Photography course started and I specialized as an underwater camera technician. I have been helping students to combine photography and their underwater skills since and enjoy watching the progression of students within this field. I also work one day a week as the dive safety officer, a role I have held since 2015.
