One of the most exciting and challenging photo projects I’ve ever tackled took place in Sept. 2009 while shooting a documentary for UNESCO’s World Heritage Photo Project. It was an incredible experience that I’ll never forget, and one that I hope you can share via the images, stories, and HD videos I brought back with me.
This portfolio contains a small sampling of the thousands of photos I shot during more than two dozen dives on some of the most pristine coral reefs in the world. The photo of the giant clam above is one of my favorites for two reasons: first, I love the color patterns inside this 3-ft long clam, and second, the photo contains two perfectly camouflaged fish. Look closely to the right of the clam and you may see them!
This project marked the first time I had access to an underwater camera setup (a Panasonic GH1 in a custom housing) that allowed me to shoot 1080p Full HD videos. Several of the movies I shot, including a shark feeding frenzy and a mystical visit with an ancient sea turtle, can be found in my Nature Video portfolio.
