Though I do not make my living from photographer as do the Photographer Members of iLCP, it has been a part of my life for over 20 years, starting with my Pentax K1000 and eventually leading to a darkroom in my home. It is a very important tool of my conservation work and many of my images have been published with articles or educational books I’ve written, used online, donated for use in other educational books and posters, or simply used to document my campaign work.

Underwater my camera has become like my DV, something I never go without – to share and show the world the underwater beauty I have dedicated my life to helping conserve is my silent obsession. In so doing I hope to influence others who might never see that magical world (See some of my underwater images). At times it is for the simple challenge and pleasure of capturing the beauty of Nature, which is an integral part of my life. This last weekend I never dived but with camera in hand, hiking with friends and their kids, watching a sunset, and braving the weather to photograph kite surfers, I share a few of the moods of Nature I captured. I am privileged to live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
