has been a lifelong inclination and a hugely enjoyable part
of my life. I have always liked to make and modify anything
mechanical or electromechanical, so when I started to dive
I had a whole new world of potential. Weight belts, backpacks,
gauges, knives, reels, etc. Then the next bug bit and photography
became the new all-consuming passion. Now it was housings
for cameras, strobes and light meters, then strobe arms,
base trays, leak detectors, special optics including custom
video housings for the filming of the Blue Planet by the
BBC. Now I spend more of my time relaxing on diving trips
and restrict my workshop time to friends, but rarely turn
down a challenge. I have listed below some of the small
items I, or my friends still make for the 'needy'.
In the last couple of years we have been asked to fit the
Inon viewer to a number of Sea & Sea housings. We have
fitted both the Straight-View and the 45 degree Viewer.
Although the job is basically a swap-over, it does involve
some special tools including drilling tiny holes for the
anti rotation pins. If you have aquired a Viewer from another
housing, a friend or off Ebay and you would like it fitted
to your existing housing, give us a call and we will endvour
to fit it for you.
We have designed many different shaped ports to fit on most
housings. Long ports, slim ports and dome ports, all custom
designed to suit our customers needs. Long macro ports for
those extra diopters, slim ports to allow close strobe lighting
on small subjects. Replacements for obsolete threaded ports
- now unobtainable from the original manufacturers - and
Our own unique design, all black bendy arms with top and
bottom fittings, for all housing and strobe mountings; try
Use 300mm long arms for macro and up to a maximum of 500mm
for wide angle.
Remember, it’s not the length that matters, it’s
the direction/angle of the light that counts. Bendy arms
are easy to use, both in and out of the water. You can also
use them to mount torches, light meters and dual-strobe
cable connecting blocks.
Fibre Optic Snoot:
Snooted lighting for macro and 'super macro' photography
is gaining in popularity. So we decided to use what information
was available and make and test our own version for U/W
photographers to try out this technique. With the inspiration
from Martin Edge and a host of willing helpers we developed
our "Fibre Optic Snoot". It fits/screws onto the
front of an Inon strobe providing two 'snooted mini flashes'
for matchless lighting combinations, only restricted by
||Custom Lens Gears:
We also make special lens gears for the old and the newest
lenses, zoom, focusing, and switching gears, plus the odd
sized extension ring for that odd sized lens combination.
Try us first, our prices and service for custom items has
made us many good friends and repeat customers.
||Spotting and focusing torch mounts:
We have designed and built a range of torch holders for housing,
strobe and port mountings. Just provide us with your torch
specification and where you want to mount it and we can do
