I would like to introduce myself as a new member and hope to get to know you over time. My name is Bo, I run a small home design business called Hierographics and work very part time as a dive guide escorting guests to the world famous manta ray night dives on the Big island of Hawaii. I started diving in Northern California in 1990 and, as an instructor, trained SCUBA in Monterey and Mendocino. My wife, Jamie and I have travelled quite a bit diving and are always looking for the next place to discover. I enjoyed underwater film photography back then and, when I moved to Hawaii in 2004, I started over with digital and struggled for years 'crossing over'. I believe that I have only started to get a handle on it around the begininng of 2009 and enjoy learning new aspects daily.
After starting with a point and shoot, I now use a Canon XTI DSLR with two DS 51 strobes and use the 18-55mm kit lense, a 50mm macro, and the Tokina 10-17mm fisheye (love it).

Hey Scott, Come over for the mantas, the dolphins, the turtles, the sharks, and baitballs. They await your arrival.
