For more than a decade I have been creating underwater photographic images that have drawn enthusiastic response from around the world.

At and around my base on a small island in the Bahamas I develop underwater projects from artistic conception to post-production.

My work has been featured in print and web magazines worldwide, on numerous book covers, and at exhibitions in Asia, Europe, and the Americas.

I have worked with brands including Samsung, Olympus, MGM, Air Canada, Davidoff, SLS Hotels, Atlantis, and BodyGlove.

With my daughter, who has been appointed the first ambassador for the Bahamas National Trust, we are bringing attention to the Trust’s conservation work and management of over two million acres of National Marine Parks.

Some other highlights:

First major underwater photo shoot with a cell phone for Samsung.

A solo exhibition in Seoul, South Korea, organized by Samsung.

Numerous book covers with publishers Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster, and HarperCollins.

Underwater photography workshop and presentation at the Palm Springs Photo Festival

Solo exhibition "Ocean Song" in Duncan Miller Gallery LA, USA

Large format prints on the walls at MGM and Atlantis hotels as interior decor.

Numerous photo magazine publications: Digital Photo Magazine (US),"Il Fotografo" magazine and FotoCult (Italy), DUZHE magazine in China, Lens Magazine (Israel), DigitalPHOTO, DER SPIEGEL and Diving magazines (Germany), Professional Photographer Magazine (UK) and many more.
