This site is intended to share some of my photography with the public. My underwater photography began shortly after I learned to scuba dive in 1977, and quickly focused on the myriad of shipwrecks sunk off the US East Coast; later these efforts expanded to cover shipwrecks around the world, with a special interest in World War II era wrecks. After moving to the Seattle area in 1997, I began diving in Puget Sound and British Columbia, expanding my interests to photographing marine life as well as shipwrecks. After spending six years in the Pacific Northwest I returned to the US East Coast and resumed my shipwreck photography, but I now spend a significant amount of time photographing "terrestrial" subjects as well as those beneath the sea.

In January-February 2018 a group of us returned (yet again!) to the fabulous wreck diving location of Truk (Chuuk) Lagoon. As always (this was my fourth trip to Chuuk!) the diving was fantastic.......follow the link below for some of my favorite images from the trip.
