About Us

This is the web site of Ross and Diane Armstrong.  This page contains some information about us.

We are very fortunate to live in Tutukaka, the gateway to the Poor Knights Islands.  Tutukaka is a small harbour located on the north east coast of the North Island of New Zealand.  The picture below shows Tutukaka harbour with the Poor Knights islands on the distant horizon.

We learnt to dive in 1987, a couple of years after we got married.  Diving and more recently underwater photography has become a huge part of our lives.  It has shaped where we live and largely how we spend our spare time and money.

We played around with photography with a second hand "point and shoot" camera we purchased soon after learning to dive.  However, it was not until 1996 that we seriously got into photography with the purchase of our first camera housing.  Since then it has been a steep learning curve with lots of challenges and frustrations, but also many wonderful experiences.
