I spent a lot of time with good friends Jason and Wendy Heller of DivePhotoGuide.com, whose booth I am using as both home base and a meeting point. DivePhotoGuide is a database of over 4,000 dive destinations which can be searched by various underwater photographer-specific criteria (e.g. has camera tables, has rinse tanks, etc.). In addition, DPG has a calendar of international photo competition deadlines and also hosts an ever-growing list of nearly 70 underwater fine-art galleries by well-known names.
