Tell Us a Bit About Your Business
I offer ready to hang fine art underwater photography on Canvas, Metal, Acrylic and Paper. My premier product is my “Made In Puget Sound” Calendar, now in our latest 2015 edition.
So how do you capture these magnificent creatures and underwater landscapes?
I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III full frame DSLR camera and only use full frame Canon glass. I strongly feel to get the best shots you must have the highest quality lenses. I also use an excellent Nauticam housing, dual Inon z240 strobes and a Sola 600 focus light.
