Vinny Turner

Nationality: British

Residence: Cornwall England UK

In the beginning of February 2004, Vinny went from Bali to Gili Air Lombok for 5 days to take an open water course. He ended up staying for 5 weeks. He loved it that much and was amazed at the coral and the pure variety of species especially nudibranchs which Vinny was blown away by the colours of them.

During his advanced open water course, he did a photography dive as one of the extra dives and was hooked. The following year went back for 2 months with a Sony P150 and slowly tried learning about underwater photography

And since then it has snowballed , he go back to Gili Air every year for about 2 months at a time and the last time Vinny finally purchased a DSLR and now learning how to use the camera

Vinny is now looking forward to going back around April 2008 and going to Raja Ampat at the end of the year.

He part owns a boarding kennels and cattery in the southwest of England
