  1. Shot last week in La Paz, Mexico. I was lucky enough to get the green light coming in and never had trouble with my camera. I found them incredibly hard to shoot. Keeping up with them on snorkel was exhausting. No such thing as framing, I was just holding down the trigger blindly. Thankfully there were plenty of keepers.

  8. Hey Everyone, Just wanted to share a recent showreel I put together from the last year. Diving to me is more than just a sport, it has a much deeper meaning. To me, its about adventure, exploring the unknown, and that sense of freedom I feel every time I sink below the surface. For that brief hour underwater, I'm lost in the moment... my only focus is on the pure beauty and wonder of the underwater world I'm surrounded by. This short film was created to help share those experiences, express my passion for the underwater world, and why I love it so deeply. The filming took place over the past year at several locations including the Bay Islands of Honduras, Palau in Micronesia, and right here at my home in Palm Beach, Florida. Thanks for watching! Lee
  9. Here's a little compilation of footage shot on a recent trip to Belize. Shot with a 5dmk3 in a Nauticam housing. Canon 16-35 lens. All natural light - though it would have been nice to have had lights for the whale shark - but they were not permitted . Being relatively new with this camera and DSLRs in general, I am quite happy with the results. The premiere pro editing software was great as well as the After Effects add on I used to stabilise the shots - one or two shots have a bit of waviness as the motion was too much for the software to handle - like when I bonked a coral with my dome - oops (objects in the viewfinder are closer than they appear). I did see the softness in the edges with the 16-35mm lens but generally good sharp shots with good depth of field. I bought this camera for low light performance and I have not been disappointed... The white balance capability was also quite impressive (particularly after struggling at times with my Sony 550 HDR video cam....) Footage is from dive sites at Glovers Reef, Lighthouse Reef and of course Gladden Spit for the whale sharks. We dove and stayed with Hamanasi - a very good operation.
  10. Hi guys, just wanted to share a video of the diving in Tofo Mozambique. Some shots are a little shaky normally due to very strong currents out here. Also would like to know your thoughts. Ant

  16. In the months of May through September are the arrival of Whale sharks in the northern Yucatan Peninsula. This Congregation is the largest of these animals through all over the world. Let me explain how this starts. The first sightings were made by fishermen in Holbox. They started with this activity over 4 years ago . Studying behavior and migration of the animals, they have moved now to blue waters, north of Isla Mujeres, which is why we left north of Cancun or Isla mujeres, to navigate to this area. In Holbox mixing the water from the Gulf of Mexico, takes a greenish color. We see them north of Isla Contoy swimming in blue water , doing a better encounter. Last season National Geographic channel and Scuba diver life web site , contacted us to film these animals, the world's largest fish, is an animal that transmits calm and completely harmless, is surely a unique spectacle. Safe and fun for all the family. We sailed about 1:10 - 1:30 minutes to encounter site. On the way sometimes we find and swim with Manta rays ( Manta Birostris ) and Dolphins. Having located the specimens we do snorkel with this fantastic creature until the cold makes us out of the water. About 2- 3hrs.

  17. Join Wetpixel editor Adam Hanlon and photographer Jason Bradley in Mexico this August 2013 to swim with and photograph the largest-known aggregation of the largest fish in the world! Each summer, hundreds of whale sharks congregate in the clear blue waters off of Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Quoth me, from trip two years ago, "There's no other way to put it: our first day of photographing the whale shark aggregation was absolutely epic. Within an hour of leaving port, we found a group of over 300 whale sharks". See Eric's photo gallery from two seasons at the aggregation, and then check out this page for full booking details.
  18. Hundreds of whale sharks aggregate off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico every summer to feed on the bonito spawn. Last season was an amazing experience we had between 200 to 400 whale sharks in 1 sq km. This season we reserved private charter boats with permits at peak season to capture this incredible experience. We are only taking 6 guest / photographers per boat. Four full days in the water. Trip dates are July 18th to 23rd 2013 and July 23rd to 28th 2013 Full details: http://www.gregorysw.../trip_whale.php Hope you can join us in warm waters of Mexico for this incredible whale shark experience.

  20. One of the things I love about scuba diving is the fact you never know what you are going to see when jump in. The ocean is an ever changing environment and you can dive the same areas for years and your never guaranteed to see the same things. Well, this Sunday while aboard The Sea Dog Diver out of Pompano Beach Dive Center we could never have imagined what we were about to experience. After just coming out of the water from our first dive there was chatter on the CB radio about sightings of a Whale Shark. The joke about the boat was "did they see mermaids also?". About a half hour later we get a call from the dive boat Miss Conduct saying they have snorkelers in the water just outside of Hillsboro Inlet with a Whale Shark--and they do not have a camera...and nobody is going to believe them. Without hesitation we headed that way. Everyone on board was overwhelmed with excitement. Could it really be a Whale Shark in Pompano Beach? When we arrived all we saw was a fin in the water and the captain yelled "Go! Go! Go!" and we all jumped in. As we put our masks in the water there in front of us was the most massive gentle creature we had ever seen! Just swimming a long with his entourage of fish that followed him where ever he went. The funny thing was that after the first pass we were all hooting and hollering about how amazing it was to get to see a Whale Shark, and never (ever!) imagining he was going to come back to us over and over again. After an hour he finally had had his fun with us and moved out into the vast ocean he calls home. Needless to say the trip back to the dock was filled with chatter about this once in a lifetime experience. These shots were taken by my talented husband, Craig Dietrich.
