Biography

 

David has been an underwater photographer for the past 12 years and a certified diver since 1980, performing his certification dives in the cold waters of Vermont. David wanted to share his adventures as a SCUBA diver so he purchased a Canon camera along with an underwater housing, quickly realizing his passion for underwater photography. David has traveled to Cozumel Mexico for private underwater photography lessons with Sport Diver Magazine editor and photographer Armando Alentado.  He has also attended several seminars conducted by Kathy Church of Grand Cayman.  In June of 2015, David spent a week in Key Largo, FL with world renowned underwater photographer Stephen Frink attending his Digital Master Class.

David has been using a Canon 40D DSLR Camera to capture his images and recently upgraded to a Canon 7D Mark 2. The camera is housed in a Ikelite underwater housing, along with 2 Ikelite DS161 movie strobes.  Mounted on the top of the camera housing is a GoPro Hero 3 along with a Sola 1200 video light for video capabilities. David and his wife Cookie have traveled the Caribbean, bringing back incredible landscape and color, that oceans have to offer.  Always keeping respect for the underwater environment and sea life a priority.  David and Cookie hope you enjoy their underwater photography as much as they enjoy capturing the images.
