Welcome to Freedive Gallery

All the images on this site were taken in UK waters using a compact camera while snorkelling/freediving. As you will see they are the work of an enthusiastic amateur not a professional!

My aim is to showcase our amazing native marine life and to reveal what can be seen in relatively shallow water without the complexities and limitations of scuba diving.

The gallery contains some of my favourite images and is designed to dispel the myth that snorkelling and diving are only worth doing during overseas holidays.

The species section is the beginning of a much bigger project. Here I am attempting to build a more comprehensive collection of images to act as a portrait gallery of UK marine life and to help people identify the things they find on their own trips.

I've deliberately avoiding putting large copyright notices or watermarks on images as I want you to be able to enjoy them. Please respect this by not using them without asking me first!
