Alex's Portfolio
Alex Mustard Alex Mustard is a keen BSoUP member and acts as digital photography officer for the Society. You can see more of his images in his first book "The Art Of Diving" which was released in March 2006.

Alex writes "I actually discovered I had won the competition while in the Bahamas - as poor weather forced us to shelter for a night in the West End marina on Grand Bahama - where there is free Wi-Fi!"

"My original entry for the 2006 Theme Portfolio competition was not allowed to compete as Martha, the BSoUP Chairman, thought that some might think that canine hydrotherapy pool might count as a swimming pool and swimming pool shots are not allowed. So in a rush I re-submitted a more serious entry on the theme of "Circles in the Sea". The theme was borrowed from a similar portfolio of Linda Dunk's which won this trophy a few years ago. The portfolio was assembled in
a bit of a rush - in West Palm Beach, Florida - the night before boarding the Jim Abernethy's Shear Water for a shark safari in the Bahamas."
