Entry Description

Over-under of green sea turtle taken at sunset just as the turtle popped its head up to take a breath. Single, in camera image taken with Canon 5D Mark iii in Nauticam housing with dual strobes.

About Photographer

Growing up in Southern California, the ocean has always been a large part of my life. Since 2004, I have traveled across the globe, diving in some of the most remote parts of the world. With my many dive travels, I have developed a true passion and appreciation for marine organisms. I believe underwater photographers help employ constructive change for our deteriorating seas through the use of striking images. With my pictures, I hope to increase the awareness of our fragile marine ecosystems and encourage others to help protect our oceans.
