LEIGH BISHOP
Deep wreck explorer & photographer


Few of us will ever get the opportunity to be one of the very first divers to locate, identify and explore a historically significant shipwreck in 100m+ of water but deep wreck explorer Leigh Bishop has been there many times! Regarded as one of the world's leading deep wreck explorers and a pioneer in deep wreck photography, we're very pleased to welcome Leigh to TEKCamp 2015.

Leigh will be spending several days onsite at TEKCamp to share his knowledge and experience of deep wreck diving with TEKCamp attendees. The highlight of his attendance will be a very special 'keynote' presentation during which Leigh will offer a fascinating look into the world of deep wreck diving through the eyes - and camera lens - of one of the world's best-known shipwreck explorers.

From the renowned RMS Britannic (sister ship of the Titanic) and Lusitania, the infamous Flying Enterprise and the liner Transylvania to the lost bullion wrecks Egypt and Niagara, Leigh has dived - and photographed - them all! Leigh has also visited the most famous wreck of them all - the RMS Titanic - onboard a MIR Submersible.

TEKCamp 2015 attendees can look forward to some genuinely exciting 'boys own' adventure stories accompanied by some genuinely jaw-dropping photography - For fans of (rusty) heavy metal, Leigh's attendance at TEKCamp 2015 is an opportunity not to be missed!
