A look at what goes into assembling the +Ikelite Underwater Systems  5DmkIII and DS-161 Strobes from scratch. When flying, I break everything down to all its pieces to fit inside a carry size hard case (check in luggage) which makes traveling easy.

Diving with Sevengill Cowsharks in the kelp forests of False Bay is still some of my favourite dives...

Photo Tip: Shoot Up

A common survival strategy for underwater wildlife is camouflage. Shooting upward and using the water column offers a different perspective and better contrast.

Watch the Red Bull 'Deep Everest' documentary of Annelie Pompe in full HD for which I filmed the underwater/ in water sequences (if you look closely you'll also notice me as the freediver filming in some of the shots :) )

All my underwater footage filmed with +Ikelite Underwater Systems 
Follow Annelie Pompe on her quest to become the highest (Mt. Everest) and lowest (freediving) woman in the world.

The past year I've been a guest at this hotel several times and will surely be returning on future visits to Bangkok. 4 out of 5 when considering value for money. The hotel is located at a 5 minute walking distance from the nearest BTS station (Ratchathewi) which is one station away from the very central Siam BTS station (shopping malls like MBK, Siam Center etc). Taking a train one station in the opposite direction brings you to the Airport interchange which means its dead easy to get to and from the airport without having to pay for expensive taxi rides. Getting to Khao San Road from the hotel (which is necessary for Lomprayah busses to the rest of Thailand) is a 10 minute taxi ride and will cost about 80 to 100 baht. The rooms are great value for money and remind me of a few 4* hotels I've stayed in (big bed, nice city views, big screen TV, fridge, big desk/working area', free fast wifi etc). Some people complain about the dark atmosphere and decor but its something I personally like. The only slight complaints I've had has been the helpfulness (lack thereof) of the staff at the front desk on a few occasions, but these have been minor.
