Having an extensive background in scuba diving, commercial diving, and snorkeling from various places like Lake Michigan to Curacao, underwater photography has been my lifelong dream. Traveling the world, diving the oceans, seeing all the sights that one person could gets my heart racing. Your days would never be similar and your nights would be just as exciting. Watching black tipped reef sharks hunt for prey, stalking giant stingrays feeding along a rocky reef, or free diving for the one of a kind print of a feeding whale calf and their mother.
The world would be able to view the planet that they live on from an altogether different window. The sights and colors of the places we know the least about could slowly reveal themselves one photo flash at a time. The scientific community could study and observe countless prints and videos made from dives all over the planet. New advancements in medicine from plants and animals collected could hold the key to unlocking numerous viral and bacterial strains capable of diminishing human diseases.
Being an underwater photographer would be exciting, strenuous, adventurous, and a surreal career. I could think of nothing else that would let you live so passionately and still put money in your wallet. Memories are priceless and capturing them on film would preserve the emotions that you felt and sights that you’ve seen forever.
