About Me

Michael Lockton Photography

Michael LocktonMy name is Michael Lockton, formally known as Michael Oates. I was born in Belper, Derbyshire in the UK in 1951. Photography has always been a bit of a passion with me, as was Scuba Diving in the 70’s and 80’s. Unfortunately I had to give up Scuba in the mid 80’s, but in 2010 I was given the all clear to dive again. Now I am able to combine my two passions, Scuba Diving and Photography, and the result is my growing portfolio of underwater photographs.

This site, along with my Facebook page @ https://www.facebook.com/michael.lockton.scuba.diver allows me to share those images with you. Please feel free to share the content of this site and my Facebook page on the web, but please include a link to this website when you do.

Strangely, the underwater photography has rekindled my interest in all forms of photography, so I will include those too, both old and new.

I hope you enjoy this site.
