My name is Mike and I would like to share some of my underwater photos with you. I began my diver training in southern California in 1987 with Pacific School of Scuba where i became a NAUI Divmaster. during a dive in 1991 in Truk Lagoon, where i was working as a DM, Jim Church handed me his Nikonos RS and asked me to finish the roll out. That was my first underwater photography experience. Kul!
