Gordon Tillen

Nationality: American

Residence: Dauin, Negros Oriental, Philippines

Gordon is currently retired and diving almost every day in the Philippines. He has been diving since 1964. He got his first point & shoot camera in 2006 and took it to Taveuni, Fiji and has been on fire with underwater photography ever since. In 2007 he traveled to Panama and Honduras while his passion for marine life grew exponentially. In 2008 he went on a dive quest through Asia and logged over 600 dives in the Philippines, Indonesia, Burma, Thailand. In 2008 he participated in the Shootout at Wakatobi and also placed 1st and 3rd in the Divephotoguide Facebook competition. Although not a big fan of contests, he really only competes with his last good picture and continues trying to improve his photographic skills. He states that it has been a long learning curve for him. Currently compiling photos for a book on the marine life of Dauin. He holds a PADI Advanced Open Water and an SSI Nitrox certification. In hindsight his only regret is that he didn't have a camera for the 13 years he lived and dived in Hawaii. Many of his photos can be viewed at http://gordontillen.smugmug.com/
