Sunset at the Sandbar, the calm returns!
French Angel giving me the eye.....
This tiny shrimp was clinging tightly to the end of a purple-tipped anemone during a strong current.
"Black Beauty" - Because of the seahorse's dark color, I chose to silhouette it with backlight, and frame it within the brightly-colored sealife it was hiding in.
Silversides look like a swarm of bees as they race into a swim-through.
"Christmas Comparison" - I photographed these same Christmas tree worms as an example for single strobe position. Shot with identical settings but moving the strobe further back to create more shadows, and hence, texture!
Purple Crowned Sea Goddesses
Stingray Beauty
"Exiting The Maze" - A Caribbean reef shark threads through a coral maze and out into open sand.
Crystal Reflection
Wide Angle Snoot - Photograph #3: Third in a series of images where I'm experimenting with wide angle snoot technique. A lobster is illuminated by my snoot, while intentional light bleed from my strobe provides 3-D light on the edge a sponge.
Wide Angle Snoot - Photograph #2: Second in a series of images where I'm experimenting with wide angle snoot technique.
A green moray eel is isolated by strobe light as it hides in an overhang on the East side of Grand Cayman.
Morning Ray
A simple Graysby
Wide Angle Snoot - Photograph #1 - First in a series of images where I'm experimenting with wide angle snoot technique. Here, a cluster of sponges are illuminated and isolated by a single strobe as a school of fish race over the reef.
Close up shot of soft coral munching on the passing plankton. When observed from a distance these colonies look like stalks in the water, but when you get nice and close you can see the beautiful hidden organization.
Hydroid In High Key
Always looking for a unique and artistic way to shoot familiar subjects smile
"Sponges In 3-D"
Sponges pop off the screen. Double exposure on a single frame. Shot in camera on the multiple exposure setting.
A french angel peeking around the corner
"OCD Diver Tries To Right Shipwreck"
Kittiwake shipwreck
Grand Cayman
Diver model: Simon Claeys
Sharpnose Puffer
"A Shark In Motion Tends To Stay In Motion" - Panning while photographing one of the three Caribbean reef sharks who spent the entire dive with us!
Last Wreck Standing
Who's looking at who?
"Me and My Shadow"
The USS Kittiwake was moved dramatically by Hurricane Nate!
