Sept. Meetup-Graham Abbott & Underwater Discovery!

Online event

Our online presentation for September will be with Graham Abbott. Graham is a dive guide and photographer based out of Bali. ZEN AND THE ART OF UNDERWATER DISCOVERY! Have you ever wondered if your dive guide is REALLY showing you the best dive site? Did you ever wonder why this exact spot was chosen by the dive operator? What about just a little further down the reef? The water is always bluer… Graham will talk us through the Zen and Art of Underwater Discovery. Identifying a new region to explore Setting up the logistics of the expedition (boat, crew, equipment, safety considerations, cost) Mapping out a dive site, marking it on the GPS, keeping personal notes, recording the species found Naming a dive site Exciting rare critters found (lots of pictures!) Harrowing experiences (will keep it positive!) There will be plenty of time for Q&A as Graham enjoys friendly banter with like-minded divers. Bio: Graham Abbott has been exploring Indonesia and leading dives in this magical destination for decades. Graham left a career in engineering in 1997 to start his quest. He has worked as a professional dive guide in such varied locations as North Sulawesi, West Australia, the Wakatobi island group, Komodo, West Papua, Flores, Alor and the Banda Sea. He finally settled in Bali and, in 2002, founded Diving 4 Images. Starting the company only served to fuel Graham’s dive travels as he led groups throughout Eastern Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands and continues to lead expeditions seeking out new dive spots. His lust for discovery hasn’t waned as he has organized pioneering dives to Triton Bay, West Papua, and blazed the trail as one of the first operators to lead regular expeditions with recreational divers to Halmahera and Northern Seram. Diving 4 Images has worked with many of the world's best photographers and film-makers including organizations such as: BBC and Peter Scoones Imax 3D with Howard Hall Productions National Geographic contributors including David Doubilet and Tim Laman Other well renowned photographers like Alex Mustard, Eric Cheng, Norbert Wu Meeting ID:[masked] Passcode:[masked]
