Photographer & Ocean Adventurer Steve Drogin Passes Away
By Jason Heller, April 27, 2009 @ 01:00 AM (EST)

It is with deep regret that we inform you of the passing of ocean advocate, underwater photographer, adventurer and friend, Steve Drogin. Sadly, Steve had a heart attack on April 14th while traveling in India with his wife, Hiro. Our thoughts go out to the Drogin family.

I met Steve two years ago at Boston Sea Rovers, where he made a lasting impression on me and we've stayed in touch ever since. I'll never forget that day. Steve pulled me aside after a seminar I presented, and we sat alone in a back room and talked about underwater photography and gadgets and swapped tarvel stories for almost 2 hours. We had planned to dive together, but sadly never did. I'll miss you Steve.
