Sixties Beneath The Sea
Here are some of the underwater photographs I took, during the 60s, while working as a photojournalist for major newspapers and magazines.
To expand my scope I had learnt SCUBA diving, skydiving and flying in light aircraft. For by underwater work, I used a Nikonos camera fitted with a 21mm wide-angle lens in a housing especially built for me by the acclaimed American cameraman, Flip Schulke. This enabled me to shoot pictures in poor sub-aqua visibility, something which divers in UK waters are all-too-familiar with!
You can se more of my photographs from this decade in my new book The Way It Was – A Photographic Journey Through 60s Britain (www.thewayitwas.uk)
