The dive reports presented here are largely incomplete, but the great
majority of photos shared from the trips were taken with a Nikonos V 35mm film
camera. The transition from that camera to a housed digital SLR will
now allow a greater range of photo opportunities to be taken advantage of during
the course of a dive. My DSLR is the Nikon D200, for which I've chosen the
Sea & Sea DX200 housing. Click here for
a closer look look at the DX200, traveling with all the equipment, and an
in-air test of dual strobe lighting using the Inon Z-240 u/w strobes with a Sea
& Sea TTL Controller.

JazzDiver's Travelogue is provided in the interest of offering
you information on dive destinations that is not likely going to be found
in most diving magazines, along with unbiased opinions. In the magazines, you will find some good descriptions of the
actual dive sights, with an overview of a particular resort or dive operation. Talented
authors who have developed a keen eye and memory for the details of their underwater
exploits can very likely give a better description of the marine environment than I. For
the most part, I'll leave my photography to provide what I couldn't in a thousand words.
On the other hand, I hope to provide a bit more coverage "topside" than what
magazines offer. My dive trips are few, but hopefully these reports are
helpful nonetheless. As always, any comments or questions are welcome.
NOTE: In the interest of adding a little more "life" to my
photo collections, some photographs will include recognizable persons. If one of these
persons should happen to be you or someone you know, and I have not received permission to
use your picture, PLEASE e-mail me
and specify whether or not I may continue the use of this image. If requested, I will
remove the photograph from this website as quickly as possible; I do ask that you include
your telephone number in the e-mail so that I may contact you directly to confirm this as
a legitimate request.
