odds and ends from an unusual life

back in the water.

Hello friends,

Made it to Roatan in one piece. It’s hot, the bugs are bad and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. Reunions are good and it’s great to be around friends all day. Got the rig underwater yesterday and put it through its paces. Didn’t see too much but it’s nice to just be getting it dialled in. That’s the plan this month, to shoot as much as possible underwater until the big new rig is second nature to use. Thanks to the crew at Reef Gliders who are taking good care of me.

Here are a few. They should get better as the summer goes on.


White wire coral shrimp. These guys are so hard to shoot.
Grouper gets a cleaning by some gobies.
Goldentail Moray eel.
Angelfish takes a turn.
Spotted Moray eel.
Giant hermit crab churning up a sandstorm.
Mantis shrimp peers out of a little crevice.

Hi Friends,

My life is pretty much upside down over here so I apologize for the lateness of this wallpaper. Thanks to the loyal friends and fans who keep me on my toes.

Spring is time to get out on the water. This shot is from Halfmoon Bay in Roatan and features members of the Bay Islands Yacht club. I took it last May while sipping a drink at Sundowners and by the end of the month I’ll be right back there. I am very lucky to have such great friends. Thank you all.
