Neptune Memorial Reef Project

  Sometimes a little destruction is just what’s needed to take the next step forward.  Back in September 2017, Florida took a hit from Hurricane Irma, and along with the countless people and businesses affected, the Neptune Memorial Reef project took an unexpected hit.  They even took a double-whammy as their corporate headquarters were located…

A Day With the Manatees

“Oh, the weather is frightful…But the springs are soooo delightful…and since we’ve no place to go…. let it manatee, let it manatee, let it manatee”.  Well, maybe that last line didn’t quite rhyme, but how else are we Floridians to get in our winter folk songs?  And yes, we’re right in the middle of manatee…

Trip Report- Cabo Pulmo, Mexico

Going on a shooting expedition during the Christmas chaos is the norm.  We always look for a place off the beaten path, where instead a of road-rage filled shopping frenzy, I can get my creative juices flowing and ring in the new year with some fresh new images.  Cabo Pulmo fit the bill quite nicely! …

Trip Report Ireland/Scotland

It all started as girls’ trip, but hey, I’ve never been one to say no to foreign travel to a new place.  To some, hanging with 4 girls may sound intimidating and risky, and to others, it may sound like a billionaire playboy dream.  But for me, I’m just there to photograph some water of…

Post Irma Hurricane Report

The short version: everything’s fine. The long version: it all begins with planning. For those who have never gone through a hurricane, the most important thing to know, is that there’s always lots of time to plan – usually at least a week.  Those who plan are usually just fine.  Those who procrastinate, well, that’s…

Historical Shipwrecks of South Florida

Florida’s coastline hides an amazing collection of sunken maritime history. During the months of April and May, I was tasked by the Florida government to create a historical record of several important archaeological sites. Over the next few weeks, well I didn’t find any gold doubloons, I found myself taken back to the late 1800’s…

Looking For Water In The High Desert

Once again, the underwater photographer finds himself on an expedition through the high desert…..there must be water here somewhere…….right? Flying into Phoenix is always easy & uneventful.  Rental car (little Kia with 40mpg – perfect for this 2200 mile trip), cheap motel, up early the next morn, and on the way to see the iconic…

Peru Trip Report

“MIA AIRPORT CLOSING AT 3:00PM TOMORROW” was the report we read as we were in mid-Hurricane Matthew prep last week.  Problem was, our flight was departing MIA at 6pm.  Were we going to miss the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Machu Picchu and hunt (with a camera, of course) for giant river otters in the Amazon??? …
