‘A true and knowledgeable professional, with vast experience below the water surface, on land and also from the air’
I was one of the original group of people who set up the world renowned Isle of Man Basking Shark Watch many years ago, and was a charter skipper running wild-life trips around the Island prior to my retirement. I got to know Frazer from his frequent trips to photograph wildlife both above and below the water. The quality of Frazer’s work is excellent, to the extent that I am aware that some of his underwater footage of basking sharks was used by The Isle of Man Government Department of Environment, Agriculture and Fisheries at various world-wide seminars, and is also still used by The Manx Wildlife Trust as well as the Manx Whale and Dolphin Watch. Frazer’s work features prominently on posters and notice boards around the Island. I carry out presentations showing coastal wild-life around the Island to many and various groups. Frazer has kindly given me permission to use a number of his images of sharks, whales and dolphins as well as local bird-life. His work never ceases to gain very positive comments from people who are used to studying and in some cases photographing wild-life – which is praise indeed. Recently Frazer has also used drone footage he has taken of the beautiful coast, which again has met with the same response. A true and knowledgeable professional, with vast experience below the water surface, on land and also from the air.
