If you had the chance to see Chuck’s presentation last year on the Sea of Cortez and the Rocio Del Mar, you know this will be a fantastic show on one of the most colorful underwater places on earth.Linda Reisinger and Chuck Tribolet dive the Monterey area almost every weekend with cameras in hand. Their first date was a dive at Pt. Lobos in 1997. Between the two of them, they have over 3000 Monterey dives, mostly off Chuck’s seventeen-foot Boston Whaler dive boat. They consider the Monterey Bay to be some of the best cold-water diving around. In order to finance their dive addiction, Linda spends her weekdays as a Revenue Accountant for Responses while Chuck is a Software Engineer for IBM.
Each year they religiously participate in two local underwater photo competitions: the SEA International Photo Competition and the Monterey Shootout. They have placed several times over the years. In fact, in 2011 Linda placed first in the SEA International California category and won a stay on the Nai’a dive boat in Fiji. This past April, they spent ten days on the Nai’a (thanks Nai’a and NCUPS). To minimize their luggage and maximize their photo opportunities, Linda chose to shoot only wide-angle while Chuck shot only macro.
They look forward to sharing their images from their Fiji trip with you at the next meeting!
