My passion for photography originated as a scuba diver.  I am originally from the Philippines and immigrated to the US in my late teens.  I am a Technology Consultant and an Architect by profession living in Bel Air, California.  Scubahead.com contents are mostly underwater images and videos taken from the places I have traveled.  My early photographic journey started in the late 1990s with a Sea & Sea Motormarine II-EX 35mm film camera and fresh out of scuba training.  I switched for a Sony High Definition Camcorder in Amphibico housing later, circa 2004.  I upgraded to Canon 5D Mark II, Subal Housing and Inon Z240 strobes in 2011.  My passion for photography was re-ignited during a 2-month dive trip in remote islands of Indonesia and Philippines, whose unique environment, special critters and amazing marine life remain an inspiration to this day.
