As a passionate underwater photographer, I have an insatiable desire to share the beautiful life I am able to see happening in the sea. My photographs are a way for me to document the things I have seen in the most artistic way possible. The more I visit the ocean, the more I love this valuable resource and the more my desire to preserve it grows. I hope to convey my feelings of respect and awe to others who may not have the opportunity to scuba dive, and share those feelings with those that do. I also love photography and have spent many hours learning my skill. For any budding photographers out there, I hope to share some tips for better underwater images through my “Tutorials” page. Please feel free to contact me with comments or suggestions for future tips.
I teach private and group lessons in underwater photography both “on site” and in a classroom setting. If you are interested in learning more about underwater photography, please contact me for more information.
For the casual observer and amateur photographer, I publish a blog on underwater photography, tips and tricks for better underwater images, and my observations of the beautiful and sometimes strange aquatic world. Please visit www.waterdogphotographyblog.com and take a look! My tutorials have been syndicated by UW Photography Guide, a great online resource for underwater photographers. You can also find my tutorials on Dive Photo Guide.
I am an ALPHA Shooter for SEA & SEA Underwater Imaging Company working to promote Sea & Sea underwater photography equipment. I use a Nikon D810 camera housed in a Sea & Sea MDX810 housing. I use two Sea & Sea YS-D2 strobes for most of my lighting. Although I use a variety of lenses, my lens of choice for wide angle photography is a Sigma 15mm fisheye lens and for macro photography I use a Nikkor 105mm.
My work has been published in many publications including Scuba Diver Magazine, California Diver, California Diving News, Dive News Network, Scuba & H20 Adventure, Taucher Review, Dive Photo Guide and Underwater Photography Magazine.
