A certified PADI instructor and underwater photographer with over 1800 dives, Bill is a native Canadian who now lives and dives in Sosua.In June 2015 he initiated, organized and hosts a now monthly clean-up of the local dive sites and the beach, and has his diving videos featured on OEPM Television in the Dominican Republic. One of his videos is being used by the University of British Columbia psychology department to aid students in relaxing prior to exams.
Bill's photos have been exhibited for a 3 month run in Casa de Arte in Sosua and were on display in Centro Leon in Santiago, Dominican Republic in June, 2016. Bill recently had photos on exhibit in Belgrade, Serbia.
Along with a small group of divers, he has started the Sosua Bay Rejuvenation Project to restore Staghorn Coralsto the reefs in Sosua. The project was featured on Jeff Corwin's "Ocean Treks" TV show on ABC.
After moving to the Dominican Republic, I became quickly aware that there was little if any information available on the wonderful diving here on the North coast of the island. My initial project was to write a book - Diving Sosua - to highlight the underwater world as well as provide information on Sosua itself, the culture and the activities available that make it the premier dive destination in the Dominican Republic.
The underwater world is a colorful collage of life and the ability to capture this and share it with people truly brings me one of my greatest pleasures in life. The undersea life is thriving, the reefs are healthy, and the diving is getting better every day. Sosua is quickly becoming a world class diving destination.
Through my photographs, books and this website I hope I can bring to you a wonderful new world to enjoy. Please leave a comment or contact me via e-mail for any inquiries regarding my books or photo prints.
Thank-you and hope to see you here in the warm Caribbean waters here in Sosua.
