His audio visuals include underwater sequences and details can be found on the Audio Visual page of his website In 2001 he obtained a Distinction with the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (DPAGB).

Len joined The Royal Society of Photography (RPS) and earned an ARPS distinction in the Applied Category using underwater images taken with slide film. This was followed in 2006 when he achieved a Fellowship distinction with the RPS in the Nature category with digital prints.

In 1988 Len formed PHOTOSUB Underwater Photography Club. This club  provides the backdrop for much of his diving.

By building up successes with entries in various British Photographic Exhibitions affiliated to the BPE Crown Awards scheme Len achieved the BPE1 award certificate in March 2007, BPE2 in April 2007 and BPE3 in May 2008.

Len will be showing some underwater audio visuals, including his latest one 'Hidden Depths' that was the overall winner in the East Anglian Audio Visual Competition this year and also won 'Best Photography' in that competition. He will also show images from one of his recent trips using the audio visual programme Pictures To EXE to create a manual presentation.
