George DeCamp Bio
My wife Louise & I are divers and have advanced certifications. I was so amazed while doing my first dives I knew I wanted to capture it on film so I bought myself a cheap UW camera outfit. After one trip I knew I needed something more. I progressed up to a Nikon N90s with an Aquatica UW housing and was getting the images I wanted finally after a few years of diving and practice. It's not easy to take a trip once or twice a year and expect to get the images you want.
I decided I wanted more from photography, something I could do more often and I began more topside photography, landscapes, nature and soon it was birds. I purchased my F100 and some years later later I got my first DSLR a Nikon D100 and that really gave me another push to the next level. I am now using a Nikon D3 as well as my D300s and assorted Nikon lenses up to and including the new 600VR and have become a Nikon Professional Services member.
