About me:

Photography is art when it makes us see something familiar in a new way, when it evokes emotion and when it is not only pleasing to the eye but strikingly vivid.
An Underwater photographer, I also capture topside nature, landscapes, scenics, wildflowers, historic architecture, ocean scenes, people, birds, bugs and other animals.
Nikon D800e
7 Nikon FX lenses
Olympus E-330
Olympus C-8080
Underwater Ikelite housings for the E-330
Ikelite DS-125 strobes
UW I always use a focus light on a swivel mount
