Video & Movie / Black and White - Manta Ray Conservation
« on: January 28, 2015, 12:00:03 PM »
I am proud to post a project that I have just finished up. It is a short film project called Black and White. This is a bit different than my previous films. It educates about the issues facing the world's Manta Ray population. And also encourages the conservation of this beautiful animal. If you have ever been in the water with one, you will know what a special experience this is. Please Share this video to get the word out to as many people as possible.

Please Share, Like, and Comment!

I hope you enjoy it.

Video & Movie / Octopus and More!

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.

Shot with a 5dII and a 100mm macro lense with a wetdipoter +10 magnification.
As always comments are welcome.  Let me know what you liked and didn't.

Watch in HD!

Video & Movie / Shrimp

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.

Hi everyone,

I wanted to share my latest short film effort.  It is some shots that I took of some nudibranchs in papua new guinea.  If you have seen a nudibranch before, they are incredibly interesting and colorful creatures.  Make sure to watch in HD! 


Let me know what you think.  Comments and constructive critisism is always welcome.

Hello everyone,

I thought I would share my first of a few videos that will come from my recent travels to Milne Bay in Papua New Guinea. Great diving! Some of the best I have seen. Healthy reefs and great critters.

Video & Movie / Macro Video with 100mm USM
« on: May 28, 2014, 07:38:12 PM »

Thought I would share a macro video I shot with the Canon 100mm USM.  I also used a +10 Wet Dipoter to get even closer in.  Let me know what you think.

Octopuses of the Night,  Canon 5d Mark II

Hello Everyone,

I experimented doing some video with the Canon 8-15mm Fisheye lens.  It is definitely a specialized look. 
Have a look.  I found that movement and spinning served it well, but obvisouly this needs to be done in the right circumstance.  Let me know what you think.

Does anyone know if it is possible to make it record a full circle, instead of cutting off the top and bottom? 



Video & Movie / Super Macro Underwater / ISS Timelapse short film
« on: April 17, 2014, 04:02:04 PM »
Hello everyone,

I put together a short underwater film called Critter Planet.  It is filled with very rare underwater creatures, one of which a Kalinga Ornata nudibranch, is so rare, that as far as I can see I am the only one in the world with video footage of it in its natural habitat. 

To better tell the story, I also incorporated some timelapse from the ISS.   Also, have done some narration for the first time.  Check it out, and let me know what you think.

Watch in HD!!

Video & Movie / Galapagos Underwater - Darwin's Dream - Bronze Award
« on: February 27, 2014, 05:27:50 PM »
Hello Everyone,

I wanted to share my latest underwater film - Darwin's Dream. I was lucky enough to have it awarded the bronze award at the Our World Underwater film competition. Galapagos is an amazing destination both below and above the surface. This was shot in only 5 short days of diving. At the end of the film you will see we had a special visitor. It was very exciting. Let me know what you think.
Please feel free to like, share and comment!

Video & Movie / Hunting CuttleFish
« on: February 09, 2014, 07:18:38 PM »

I had an amazing experience of doing a night dive with this cuttlefish.  It used my lights to hunt.  It was amazing to watch.  I was using the 100mm macro lens.  So as you can image handholding it in water is a bit of a challenge to keep focus.  But I did my best.

So I've decided most things are much more awesome underwater than on land.  Check out these sea slugs and how colorful they are.
