My photo experience began underwater. I wanted to share pictures of the underwater world with friends, family, and for memories. I started with a simple point and shoot camera, but was frustrated with the results, so I invested in better equipment. I then began working with my camera above the water, as a way to improve my shooting while scuba diving.
As my travel section describes, I have had the opportunity to travel to some of the best dive destinations in the world. The creatures we meet are both beautiful and unique. The colors of soft coral, the textures of sponges, and the creatures that make them a home, create beautiful images.
The images include shots taken throughout the Caribbean, Galapagos, Hawai’i, Papua New Guinea, Australia, and my favorite, Indonesia, where I have spent over 10 weeks in the last two years.
Please join me, by browsing these pages, and getting a better appreciation of the wonders that live under the 70% of the world covered by water. I am thrilled to show these images and do want to make a point of encouraging underwater photographers to not touch their subjects. Unfortunately, many underwater photographers touch and move their subjects, hoping for a better shot. I believe that no shot is worth stressing the creature.
