R.I.P. Neville Coleman (1938 - 2012)

Disheartened to learn that another diving legend has passed away. Regrettably, Neville and I never met in person. However, our paths once crossed when he published one of my British Columbia diving stories in the January 1992 issue of an Australian magazine he was publishing at the time called Underwater Geographic. It was a great thrill for me at the time that someone of his stature on the international diving stage would deem my words and images to be so worthy that they would grace the pages of one of his publications. He seemed to be a “good bloke.” R.I.P. Mr. Neville. And, thank you, for helping me along… way back when.  
I can't imagine that there are many underwater photographers in the universe who are not aware of Neville Coleman's massive body of work. Check out his website and you'll be awestruck by his many accomplishments
