I left the corporate world a couple years ago to concentrate full time on underwater photography and conservation. That was one of the best decision I ever made. My favorite subject is sharks, but I really enjoy photographing most anything underwater from tiny shrimp to massive shipwrecks. I hope to capture images that inspire people to care about the ocean and the creatures that live in it. I shoot with an Olympus OM-D E-M1, Nauticam housing, and Sea&Sea YS-D2 strobes.
