This shot was taken right as the sun set over the reef on Heron Island. The rays of the sun came through the water onto the Acropora colony, giving it an amazing colour.

Hi,my first underwater housing, so I am new to this style. There is a bridge near me that was built in 2005 that curves around and then goes over the ocean, replacing the road that hugged the cliffs but shut due to rock falls. My bridge portrait!

I saw this upside down Jelly pulsating close to the surface while on a paddle in the mangroves. I love how close to the surface he was for this shot.

While swimming out for a shore dive at sunset, I asked my friend to pose for me. I balanced one strobe on top of my head to give her face fill light, and placed the other strobe under the water to illuminate her tank and octo.

"Starry Starry Day"
Starfish Point, Grand Cayman
The star effect from the sun, and reflected on the water, was achieved by shooting with a small aperture, not Photoshop.

Happy Hour fun, this image had one friend holding a boom with slave flash and video lights up high, one holding an iPad to make the capture through a Camranger, and one to hold the 15 ft. pole that pushes the boat.. my wife thinks I have a problem..

Over/Under on the move- the water was calm enough for splits, but swimming with the shark causes some cool water lines and lots of misses.
