Product Description

Product Description

Playing with the sharp end is a collection of articles from renowned photojournalist Gavin Parsons. Some are humorous, some serious, but all are concerned with Scuba diving (or perhaps bacon sandwiches and diving is a side line). Topics include swimming with a variety of sharks, swimming around an iceberg, investigating a 17th century shipwrteck and traveling throughout the UK in a battered van to dive in freshwater lakes.

The book covers locations as diverse as the United Kingdom, Egypt, Mozambique, South Africa and Newfoundland. This book is designed to entertain, inform and let you sit in a chair, on a plane or just on the toilet without being bored.

More About the Author

Gavin Parsons was born on the outskirts of London and considers himself the luckiest boy in the world because when he was born his mother bought him a handful of Premium Bonds that won him £1000 when he was 11. With it he bought a camera and that one moment put wood on the fire of his passion for wildlife photography, which in turn developed into underwater photography and has shaped his life ever since.

Gavin worked as the editor of Sport Diver magazine in the 90s before leaving an office desk to see the world and do all the exciting things he was reading about from his contributors.

Since 2000 he has roamed the waterways searching for the interesting, exciting, dangerous, and heart moving stories.

He has countless magazine articles and his first book is Playing with the sharp end
