On August 25 I got a group of divers together to participate in a Wave Rave, an event held to show support for our oceans, help stop shark finning and stop poaching. Organized by Sea Save Foundation, Wave Rave is a global event to unite for a common purpose – celebrate the ocean!
We had fun diving out to the Metridium Fields, seeing lots of jelly fish while we were out there and enjoying the marine life in the kelp forest and sand on our way. On the shore we enjoyed meeting some new friends and hanging out with some old friends and spreading the word about the issues our oceans face.
Here is a video with highlights of my dive that day!

Last weekend was the Monterey Shootout, a three day event where underwater photographers meet in Monterey, California to shoot (still photography and video), process and submit their work to be judged. On the last day, at the awards ceremony, the winners are announced and incredible prizes are given out to the winners. I’ve participated in this event since the late 1990’s.
This year was special for me because I was going to shoot with the system I put together using the Aquatica NEX5 housing that I won at the competition last year!Read More
