I added a couple new galleries to my collection, but hadn’t yet posted about them here. Last year I had the pleasure of shooting some photos in the Andaman Sea off of the coast of Thailand. We were based out of Krabi – where we stayed at the beautiful Centara Resort. I did some dives out near the Phi Phi islands and the quality of subjects there surprised me. This was not just another fun trip to Thailand, I really did enjoy the diving there (previously, I held the view that the diving in Thailand was pretty mediocre compared to the surrounding waters). Anyway, check out the photos from those dives here
Last August I got a number of dives in off of the Hawaiian islands of Kauai and Ni’ihau. While the trip out to Ni’ihau was brutal (a few hours each way on a boat with the beating sun and no covering, with and clanging AL80s smashing together the whole way), it was well worth it to dive with monk seals, a species that is quickly going extinct. These seals were even more docile and just as curious as our harbor seals are here in Seattle. This was also my first outing with the new Subal ND-30/Nikon D300 rig I’m shooting now. Enjoy!
