Sailfish Seduction

13 01 2011

I just led a small expedition of underwater photographers to Isla Mujeres, Mexico, where we had some epic encounters with Atlantic sailfish. Being in the water with upwards of 30 – 50 sailfish is pretty awesome. Here are some solo sailfish images. As usual, more to follow…

Cenotes Underwater Photography – Amazing Light

11 01 2011

I just spent two short days photographing some of the most beautiful light i’ve ever seen underwater. Cenotes are fresh and brackish water sink holes in the jungle of Mexico’s Riviera Maya, just south of Playa del Carmen. These are cavern and  cave systems that ultimately lead out to the ocean. The water is crystal clear and the light is absolutely on a whole other level. Here are just a few examples, More to follow… 

Thanks to Dive Aventuras and the Omni Puerto Aventuras Beach Resort for being such wonderful hosts!





Lunar Eclipse

21 12 2010

I wasn’t able to shoot the lunar eclipse from NYC tonight. However, I photographed a great lunar eclipse a few years back. I created the following two composites to represent the spectrum of the rainbow. These are time lapsed over about an hour or so. All are actual images shot with an SLR attached to a telescope. The gray color moon sliver is the actual color. The orange was pretty close to realty as well.  The remaining colors were for effect. Enjoy!





Cressi Catalog Cover

15 11 2010

We have been working with Cressi for about a year now. I really like the brand, as they are trying to take marketing and photography a step further. Cressi products are also very comfortable and well made, I enjoy diving in them.  Proud to have made the cover of the 2011 swim and snorkel catalog.





A Unique Perspective on the Sept 11th Memorial Lights

13 09 2010

Each Sept 11th in NYC we are reminded of those lost on 9/11/01 with a mesmerizing memorial of twin blue lights to represent the twin towers. The lights are actually not two single lights but rather a series of 40 xenon lights that create the two rectangular shapes. It’s beautiful.

I wanted to create from the base of these lights where you can see the individual light beams that make up each of the shapes. This is a pretty unique perspective.

My thoughts go out to the families of all who were lost that day.
