After a brief stay in Thailand in 1996 we went to Hong Kong for a year, where I worked on, what was then, the largest building site in the world. I welded for a year which earned us the cash for me to become a dive instructor. I also bought the equipment to make underwater video, which was a bit basic at the time, but it paid the rent for a good while.
I taught diving for a dive shop on Koh Tao, then spent a few years underwater, for a few hours a day, making video.
I’ll pop some photos up here and a compilation I made of video clips, it was a pleasure to be there when the coral was bright, I hope it’s still the same now.
