"Hidden Crocodile" image is playing off the name and the look of the fish.
"Reminiscent of the Fall" this school of humpback red snapper moved like the red fall leaves of a tree.
"Lion Hunter" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work. Lionfish are ambush predators. This image is re-imagining how they would be on land like actual lions in Africa.
"Turtle Farm" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work. Turtles grow algae and other organisms on their shells. To remove these things, they go to cleaning stations to have fish eat these growths like a farm on their backs.
"Yellow Ray Fall" Stingrays often conceal themselves under sand, coral heads, or anything they can to hide from predators. This image used the fall aspen leaves to reference how they hide and the name of the animal: The Yellow Stingray.
"Snapper Fall" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work. The massive school of these blue stripped snapper resembled the changing leaves of fall.
shortlistedShortlisted!
"Dragon Cave (Leafy Sea Dragon)" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work
"Bat Fish Night" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work. This image is referencing their common name: the Bat Fish.
"Maldivian Orange Tree" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work. Image is playing off the bright orange color of the Maldivian Clownfish. Like most plants and trees, these fish are endemic, they are only found in the Maldives
"Weedy In the Weed" the Weedy Sea Dragon hides and lives near shore using the weeds for camouflage. The house represents where to find them near shorlines and the thistle references the protection the weeds offer.
shortlistedShortlisted!
"Master Hypnotist" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work. Cuttlefish "hypnotize" their prey by changing their colors and textures. When they do this, curious fish swim closer and they are ambushed.
shortlistedShortlisted!

All In a Line
"Hide and Seek" The Great Hammerhead shark's favorite food is stingray. Stingrays try to counter this by hiding under the sand, but the hammerheads can sense the electrical signals emitting from their bodies.
shortlistedShortlisted!
"Fading Feeding Grounds" This background is an area that was wiped out by a hurricane because of our actions making storms stronger. I thought it would be a strong setting for the sharks, which are also disappearing because of our actions.
"In the Weeds" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work. The Weedy Sea Dragon is found in the shallow water in the sea weed. This image is a reference to that and also its name. It was also amazing to find this pregnant male carrying the eggs.
The Fireworm
"Sea Spider Corner" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work
"Pipehorse Corral" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work.
"Leafy in the Fall" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work. Image is playing off the amazing camouflage these animals have

"Winter Tree" sharks are under threat and need our protection. Millions are killed a year. This image is in reference to that, since anemones provide protection for clownfish.
shortlistedShortlisted!
Final RoundThrough to 2018 awards final round judging
"Long Distance Traveler" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work. The Lion's Mane Jellyfish travels great distances across the Atlantic.
shortlistedShortlisted!
"Grazing Turtle" part of my Underwater Surrealism body of work. This image is referring to how sea turtles act as a grazing animal in our oceans and help maintain the health of sea grass beds.
