About

I began with underwater film photography in 1994. I wanted to record my dives through images and capture the colorful reefs, ecosystems  and  marine life. Trial and error, lots of film, many books and over 300 hours of logged bottom time helped me with this endeavor. At that time I was shooting with a Sea and Sea MMII with YS 50 strobe and a macro lens.

In 2001 I began to dabble in photography above sea level and have been shooting ever since.  The challenge for me besides the technical aspects of photography and lighting, is being able to capture a single frame in  1/250  of a second and successfully convey a story, feeling or emotion to the viewer. Only when this is accomplished, is the image considered successful.
