Although I enjoy all photography, underwater photography has been my passion for over 38 years. After scuba certification in 1980 by the founder and now key partner of the Aggressor Fleet, a worldwide liveaboard operation, I was fortunate enough to gain invaluable underwater diving and photography experience through "liveaboard" diving all over the world. As a serious and professional underwater photographer, I continue to travel all over the world seeking the most pristine underwater environments. I have logged over 1400 dives in most Caribbean, Pacific, Indonesia and Indian oceans.
Underwater photography not only involves composition, lighting, camera settings, etc., but important diving skills like buoyancy control, breathing techniques, diving in currents and low visibility. Also, a key factor in getting that "perfect" shot is to understand the creature/fish in their habitats, and how they react to your presence. These are all challenges that I enjoy, in addition to the excitement of traveling to some of the most remote parts of the world like Papua New Guinea and Raja Ampat, Indonesia.
I have been published in Continental Airlines Pacific in-flight Magazines 2007 and 2008, and have won awards in many area photo contests like A.E. Backus, Pelican Island, and Vero Beach Museum of Art. Recently, one of my photos was published in the World Wildlife Fund's 2018 calendar.
