John Back is and probably will always be one of the stalwarts of the Koh Tao community, he's part of the local fabric. He has been an underwater imager here for as long as anyone can remember and is an immediately recognisable character.
A mod in the original sense of the word his sense of glee at all things and his unique perception of the world around make him a great photographer.
We are very pleased to announce - somewhat late!! that John is working freelance with The Film Company. His portraits of both fish and animals are sublime and really bring something unique out about the nature of the dive, diver or experience.
Shoting on the canon 7D with the Aquatica Housing you can find John out and about all around Koh Tao, including our very own Sunshine Divers. He also gets his Manta on regularly on the West Coast with Similian Dive Safaris.
Check out these amazing images from the past season.
