Join Dr. Richard Smith for a Marine Life and UW Photography Workshop at Siladen Resort & Spa

Published

on

World renowned British underwater photographer, writer and marine biologist Dr. Richard Smith will be leading a Marine Life and Underwater Photography Workshop at Siladen Resort & Spa in Bunaken, Indonesia in June.

Richard began his diving career in 1996 and has since trained up to Divemaster level, logging roughly 3000 dives. Diving has allowed Richard to indulge in his passion for natural history, and his photography skills allows him to share that passion with the rest of the world. In 2002 Richard graduated from the University of Southampton, England, with a BSc (Hons) degree in Zoology, before heading to Queensland, Australia, where he got an MSc in Ecology and Evolution. In 2007 Richard began researching the biology and conservation of pygmy seahorses for his PhD, and he was awarded his doctorate in 2011.

Over the past decade, Richard’s photographs and marine life focused features have appeared in a wide variety of publications around the world. Richard leads marine life expeditions where the aim is for participants to get more from their diving and photography by learning about the marine environment.

“The diving in north Sulawesi is extremely varied and thanks to its location at the heart of the Coral Triangle, and has a correspondingly high diversity of species. There are reefs with stunning corals as well as muck dives that harbour a whole different host of creatures”

Richard will be at Siladen between the 23rd June 2017 – 3rd July 2017. During his time at the resort, Richard will be giving many presentations. Subjects include, but are not limited to:

  • Critter Hunting and Photography
  • Observing and photographing creature behaviors
  • The private life of pygmy seahorses
  • Muck diving and how to get great critter shots

These lectures are aimed to give divers a greater understanding of the local marine life, thus helping them get more from both their diving and their photography. Richard will be on hand to help with creature identification, camera techniques and fish talk.

WIN one of the NEW Momentum M20 Dive Watches!!!

Published

on

For this week’s competition, we’ve teamed up with our good friends at Nautilus Diving to give away one of Momentum’s new M20 Dive Watches as a prize!

Leading watch brand Momentum has introduced the new M20 series of watches. The new collection includes the M20 DSS Diver with a classic black dial, or striking Bahama yellow dial, and the M20 GMT Diver in a black & blue “Batman” version.

The M20 Dive watch features a solid 316L stainless steel case that is beautifully rounded and polished, taking its design cues from our original 1990’s Aquamatic model. The case is just under 42mm in diameter, but the smooth curves make it feel much smaller. Style, performance and unmatched comfort on the wrist.

The M20’s elegant yet durable design allows it to be worn in almost any situation. It has a 200M depth rating along with an off-set screw-down crown for added comfort.

The M20’s are also very legible, with its double-dome sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating there is virtually no glare. At night, the SuperLuminova luminous dial and hands come to life, a vital feature for serious divers where light may not reach certain depths.

To be in with a chance of winning this awesome prize, all you have to do is answer the following question:

In a recent post on Scubaverse.com (which you can find here), we reported that the Women Divers Hall of Fame have announced the selection of how many new members who will constitute the Class of 2021?
