Roger Swainston


It was great to hear from Roger in January (2024) that he was back at Ningaloo (Western Australia) drawing the reef and photographing sites he has been monitoring for over 20 years. He was battening down the hatches in readiness for a possible cyclone (which, thankfully, missed him). He also let us know that he was working on hundreds of small paintings for a new edition, with Barry Hutchins, of the 1986 field guide ‘Sea Fishes of Southern Australia’.

You can catch up with Roger’s latest fieldtrip and work on his excellent website:

Thanks, Roger, for your generous words about T10 and for taking care of the underwater world for us for so many years.


Roger’s work is celebrated in T10 section 1.5.8
