My revamped version of the Dive Photo Guide (DPG) Shop, an online store selling underwater photography magazine Scuba Diver Through the Lens (SDTTL) (for which I am an Associate Editor), is now live.
I populated the site with the full back catalogue of SDTTL issues (2011–2014) and refreshed all the graphics, links and text on the site.
As Managing Editor of DPG, one of my functions is handling orders of SDTTL magazine through this shop.

Dear Reader,

After an unintended hiatus, The Dome Report is back in your inbox—keeping you updated on everything that’s been happening at

With International Women’s Day on the eighth of the month and March being Women’s History Month, we’ve been celebrating the multifaceted contributions of women to our industry. This week, Allison Vitsky Sallmon is the fourth female Photographer of the Week to blow us away with her fabulous imaging skills, the work of Jill Heinerth, Ellen Cuylaerts, and Debi Henshaw being no less impressive.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Jill, Ellen and Debi are just a few of the women who’ve noticed that some guys seem to find the very concept of girls with dive gear too threatening to bear—let alone the notion that great divers, pioneering underwater photographers and passionate conservationists can be either male or female. What they maybe don’t realize is, as Allison Vitsky points out in “The X(X) Factor: Observations on Women in Underwater Imaging,” that the reasons women dive really aren’t very different to the reasons men do it…

The first of my weekly newsletters as Managing Editor of Dive Photo Guide (DPG) has gone out to subscribers.
The newsletter, called The Dome Report, is a recap of the week’s major dive articles and news stories, and includes an opening introduction by me on what’s been happening at DPG.
The Dome Report is created using template-driven email marketing tool MailChimp. For this relaunch, I also redesigned the logo for the newsletter.


From mid-March 2014, I become the Managing Editor of Dive Photo Guide (DPG), an online underwater photography magazine based in New York City.
I’ll be handling production schedules, contracting and managing contributors, editing and proofreading copy, sending out weekly newsletters, posting photo and dive news, and working with advertisers.
My new email for all matters relating to DPG is ian [at] divephotoguide [dot] com.


As Asian Geographic kicks off 2014, we’ve given the magazine a major aesthetic overhaul, even giving the logo a subtle update.
Themed “Great Asian Journeys”, the issue charts the exploits of adventurers in the Arctic and Afghanistan’s Wakhan Corridor as well as following the heroic efforts of two Jesuit explorers who established the first Catholic mission on Tibetan soil in the 1600s.
As usual, I edit and proofread the entire issue.
