18 Years - A Story of a Broken Curse

14 July 2015 - 12:07 PM

Hello all,

 

I wanted to share a short film I have put together.  Those that know me and my filming style, know that I don't personally like to narrate, nor have divers in my shots....well with this film this was all unavoidable.

 

Ever since I have been diving, I have wanted to have an up close and personal interaction with Manta Rays.   I have been all of the world waiting for this magical opportunity.  Thousands of miles traveled and dollars spent, I went to some of the best places in the world to pursue this dream of mine.  Whether it be weather, bad luck, or illness, something always seemed to get in the way.  It was very frustrating.

 

This film is about how the manta curse eventually got broken.  I figured this is my story, and I needed to tell it.  So outsourcing the narration didn't make sense.  Hence the poor narration...:-). 

 

Anyhow,  Please let me know things you like and don't like about it.  Always willing to try to improve and get pointers from others.

I hope you enjoy it!

Betty Bomber - Truk

14 April 2015 - 08:25 AM

Hello everyone,

 

I wanted to share a short video of the famous "Betty Bomber" plane wreck in Truk.  It is a fun and photogenic wreck in Truk that is not to be missed.  This was shot with the new 16-35mm F4L canon lens on the full frame 5d.  It also used an 8" dome.  I found the sharpness excellent in comparison to the 17-40mm.

 

Let me know what you think.

Enjoy!

Hello everyone,

 

Wanted to share my latest effort.  It is called Black and White.  It was filmed in Socorro.  This is more of an educational and conservation artistic piece.  Let me know what you think.

Enjoy!

What are the most photogenic wrecks in Truk?

13 February 2015 - 06:19 AM

Hello everyone,

For those who have been to Truk before, what are the most photogenic wrecks there? Ones that we can't miss?

We are headed there in a month on the siren boat, so I would like to start planning.

Milne Bay - Papua New Guinea

09 December 2014 - 09:05 AM

Hello everyone,

 

I wanted to share my latest episode in the 'Rolling in the Deep' series.  This time taking a look at the critters in Milne Bay.  PNG is a terrific destination, and Milne Bay is an area where it can offer both fantastic macro and wide angle photography.

 

As always comments are welcome.  Let me know what you liked and didn't.

 

Enjoy!
