Emperor Shrimp

22 November 2014 - 09:14 AM

Hello Everyone,


Wanted to share my latest underwater short video.  I finally got some good footage of some emperor shrimp while I was in PNG.  They are known to be fast and elusive to the videographer.  So it was nice to have some cooperate.  


As always, comments and constructive criticism, are certainly welcome.

Canon 16-35 f4 L

25 October 2014 - 06:38 AM

I was wondering if anyone has used the new canon 16-35 f4 L lens yet? I am curious to see how much of an improvement it is over the 17-40mm. And if it's worth the upgrade. I know on land it is getting great reviews. But behind a dome is a different beast.

Particularly wondering if anyone has used it in a ikelite setup.

Everytime I use the 17-40mm I get upset at how bad the image is. And say I will never use it again...I like fish eyes, and the distortion doesn't bug me. But I am going to Truk in March and think the distortion and wrecks won't mix well.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.


Nudibranchs of PNG

22 October 2014 - 02:36 PM

Hello everyone,


I know nudibranchs are not everyone's cup of tea.  But they really are beautiful animals especially when viewed up close.  I tried to isolate them with lighting as much as possible to focus on the animal and the amazing colors and textures they have.  I hope you enjoy it.  


As always, comments and constructive criticism is always welcome.  Always trying to improve.


Thanks again,



Papua New Guinea - Rolling in the Deep

19 September 2014 - 08:11 AM

Hello everyone,


I wanted to share my first video from our trip to Papua New Guinea.  We stayed at Tawali and had the entire resort to ourselves for 12 days!  it was really a fantastic spot and we really enjoyed both the diving and resort very much.  While PNG is not exactly easy to get to, it should be on everyone's bucket list.  


This is the first of a few videos that I will be making from the trip.  Let me know what you think.  I hope you enjoy it!

Bali Trip Recommendations

19 September 2014 - 07:58 AM

Hello everyone,


I looking at planning a dive trip to Bali next September..ish.  We would have 8-9 days of diving.  Plus a few non dive days for topside stuff.  I am looking for recommendations for how to approach this.  Our group will be somewhat diverse, from hardcore divers/photographers to barely certified divers, to people who don't like to get wet.  I am trying appease all involved, which I realize could be very difficult.  Ideally, for the hardcore divers, we would want 4 dives a day.  For the newbies and those that don't dive, looking for topside activities for the locations we would be diving at.  And that could be as simple as laying at the beach at the resort, massages etc....


Also, with 8-9 days of diving, how many days should we spend at each location?  What should we skip?  What should we not miss?  I love macro and night dives, but also want to do the manta dive and the Liberty (which also has great macro).


I have done some of the topside stuff on Bali, so I am more looking to make this a big diving trip.  But realize that I need to think about the others as well.   


Also, any experience with AbyssWorld? 


Any help offered would be appreciated.
