Geoff Spiby is a veterinarian based in Hout Bay, South Africa. He has been exploring the underwater world ever since he was a child. Growing up in Cape Town, Geoff learned to snorkel and scuba dive in its cold, turbulent, entrancing waters. He started taking photos in the 1970s and became hooked on underwater photography when on honeymoon in the Maldives in 1984, having travelled via Hong Kong where he purchased a Nikonos 4 and a strobe light. He now seldom goes diving without a camera.
