Thanks, Massimo

 

What a loss to the community. His book is the seminal guide. RIP indeed.

I still lived and studied in Hungary when I got a scholarship to the National History Museum, London. It was the year of full eclipse, so it was in 1999. I was lucky to meet at NHM with Linda and Brian Pitkin, very nice people. Brian took me once to a BSoUP event and he was very excited. Martin Edge introduced his new book (2nd edition of the Underwater Photography) and he gave a presentation about ring-flash and blue water macro, as I remember. It was an excellent talk, very inspiring. I came back from this BSoUP meeting with lots of inspirations and a signed book from Martin. I learned a lot from his excellent book and I guess I was the first Hungarian photographer taking blue water macro (it was not that trivial before digital cameras). I feel really sorry. It's a big loss for the underwater image maker community.

This is the first of two parts of an old interview I did with Martin - the interview was for a written article, and the recording was just for my memory. So the sound quality is not the best. The files said it was 2006, but listening to it, I actually think it was summer 2009.
