Years Shooting:Edit
20 years
I don't think I have a particular style. I still consider myself learning how to take pictures and am constantly trying new things. Lately I have been enjoying the challenges of wide more than macro. I am sure having fun with it all. I began taking underwater photos five years ago to show my friends how beautiful diving can be. I started the web page around three years ago to make it easier to disseminate the information. For better or worse, some of my original photos are still there. It is interesting to watch the progression of my shooting over the years.

What I look for in a Dive Operator:
I look for an absence of cruise ship divers. I like small operations that dive masters know the area and understand the needs of photographers. Good looking dive masters willing to model is also a plus.
