Photographer – Journalist – Technical DiverUnderwater photojournalist Steve Jones is currently a photographer-in-residence at the Ocean Geographic Society and in a career spanning 3 decades, his imagery and articles have been published in over 30 countries. As a true all-rounder, Steve’s assignments have included colossal battleship wrecks in the deep north Atlantic, sub-zero encounters with Apex polar predators, through to equatorial seascapes being washed with strong currents. He is a noted deep-water and wreck photographer and has spent considerable time developing techniques to capture colour wide angle images using only the little natural light available when he is operating in the depths. His thoroughly researched editorial writing covers both maritime history and marine ecology and he is an engaging and in-demand speaker at international dive shows.

Lecture title: Frontier Photography
Exploring the deeper wrecks of Britain and Ireland.
In this talk Steve will take is on a photographic odyssey covering the wrecks of the English Channel – amongst the world’s busiest shipping lanes - before moving on to the signature wrecks of Malin Head in Ireland, whose supersized wartime shipwrecks make it a destination that should be on every technical divers bucket list. Steve will not only take us on a photographic journey through his favourite wrecks in these regions, covering their history and sinking, but will also be sharing the techniques he uses to photograph these challenging subjects in their full glory, despite them lying deep with very low ambient light. This highly informative and richly illustrated talk will therefore appeal to both technical wreck divers and photographers alike.
