In 1983, Clark finished his first prototype order in the spare room of his flat – a hand made, bright yellow, underwater camera, a presentation model for a reputable product design company. It was very well received and created an extraordinary moment for Clark – the realisation that he wanted to compete with the best model makers in the UK.
With Clark's entrepreneurial flair, he has built the company on the founding principles of market-leading technology together with the best craftsmanship.
