Tim Calver is a freelance photographer who lives in Miami Beach, Florida. He developed his career and his unique style at the Bimini Biological Field Station on South Bimini Island in the Bahamas, where he lived and worked for 6 years. It was on this small island, surrounded by biologists, that Tim found his passion in sharks, research, freediving and blue Bahamian skies. Tim was the recipient of the 2002 Our World Underwater Scholarship Society National Geographic Ford Fellowship for underwater photographers. His images have appeared in publications such as Time Magazine, Caribbean Travel & Life, Scuba Diving Magazine, National Geographic Adventure and the Discovery Channel Online. In addition, he shoots underwater still photographs for the motion picture industry.

What I look for in a Dive Operator:
I love working with dive professionals wherever I travel. They are the people who are in the water every day, know reefs and the fish, and generously give away their knowledge to visiting divers. My needs are pretty simple when I work. Much of photography is done freediving, so I only need a nice place to put down my camera. And maybe a little sunscreen. I usually forget that.
