Unlike many photographers, Seremban- born Zaidi’s photography venture did not start on land but underwater. The former police officer’s first photography experience started when he was posted to Semporna, Sabah in 1994, after 10 years in the service. He started to explore the beautiful reef and corals there. “Sipadan is one of the top three diving spots in the world, but Mabul is one of the world’s best spots for micro diving and sea photography,” says Zaidi, who has dived in various locations around the country. “Here you can see and photograph the tiny, colorful nudibranch and flabelinna as there are thousands of them, and if you like large sea turtles such as the green turtle and the Hawksbill, which can be the size of the small table, there are plenty here too.” Other marine creatures such as barracuda, jack fish, lion fish, clown fish, ghost pipe fish, red snapper and glant garoupa can also be sportted easily.

In 2009 , Zaidi opened his budget water chalets, which offer rooms with a budget price. As more tourists stay at the chalets during the holiday season, he began to offer diving and photography classes to those interested. They can obtain (PADI Certification Diving Course ) . Today zaidi or Scuba Jeff is assisted by 15 staff with some of them from Uk,Sweeden and US, on free lance basis to teach diving and underwater photography. – Izwan Ismail Repoter from New Straits Times on 15th Oct 2012.
