A Fantastic New Solution to Plastic Bottles is Making it's Way Through Australia
Everyday I feel the weight of disposable plastics getting greater and greater, but there are solutions out there, we just need to spread the world and make it happen. I'd like to introduce everyone to my friends at water3, an Australian based enterprise that are challenging the disposable plastic water bottle industry through the use of trackable, refillable bottles that allow you to store and redeem credit at filtered spring water stations. Please check out their website at Water3.com http://bit.ly/2kfFfkF and stay tuned on Islandjems Imagery for the blog to follow!

They could never be small to us – we are the small ones, and we are at the mercy of the giants, of a World that is bigger than we can comprehend. I have been humbled and I know I have had another best day of my life in the best life I can imagine."

A Year in Review
This is a bit different to the videos I normally make... It's a message to anyone hesitating, or anybody just waiting around. Go and chase your passions and dreams, and do it today. Realize your worth and make things happen for yourself. Happiness and adventure is waiting for you too, no matter how small or boring you think your life is. You can experience these things too, it all starts when you learn to accept it's possible. Don't waste any more of your precious time. Work hard for the right cause, focus on your goals, stay with your passion, try new things and take chances, appreciate and learn from your mistakes, cry when you need to, make amends with people you have wronged and with yourself, love your friends, rest and play accordingly and strive, strive strive until you're living the life of your dreams, whatever and wherever that may be. Today is your day. http://islandjems.com/ Australia.com Visit Queensland, Australia Explore Tropical North Queensland The Great Barrier Reef Great Barrier Reef Marine Park

Life in the SH♤LLOWS° Since I got into photography and film making, I have been using a #Canon G16 with a housing for all of my underwater photos and video. Today I bought myself a Nauticam housing for my other camera, a Canon 5D Mark III. It's been a journey getting myself to this point, self taught with the use of natural light only, but I've made it. I now have a new toy to play with underwater! Will forever remember and recommend my G16 to anyone 🙂 keep an eye out for some new quality underwater content.

So recently I have left my job at the Green Island zoo to pursue something a bit more challenging and further up my alley! You'll see my exploring the incredible dive sites of the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea with Mike Ball Dive Expeditions as their new host. These are the reefs I've been dreaming about for a long time - Holmes, Bougainville and Osprey reef, Cod Hole, Lizard Island, the Ribbons and many more. Stay tuned for something a bit different, and for those of you who love my Green Island stories, don't worry, I'll be back there quite frequently. Thanks for following all my adventures!
