Michael Shope Profile

Michael Shope

I am from United States
Member since: Friday, April 8, 2005
In 1986 I was certified to dive and it has been one of my passions ever since. In 1996 I began to take pictures with a Sea & Sea MM II. I have been addicted to underwater photography ever since. In 2005 I went digital. I now shoot with a Canon 20D in an Ikelite housing. To help fund my diving and underwater photography addiction I work about three jobs. One of which is teaching SCUBA.
