Never Say Never Again.

Never say never again. Kathryn had often said she would never dive with sharks. Well, here is quite literally a grab shot of Kathryn diving at Tiger Beach. Kathryn is the one kneeling on the sand. So proud of her and happy that she, like many others we know, are conquering their fears. So I dedicate this post to anyone who has ever told themselves, or was made to think by others, they can't do something. Yes, you surely can!

Throwback Thursday: A First For Everything.

August 1990: Obviously, I appear to be very happy on my first overseas Diving Magazine assignment in Vanuatu. Ended up with three cover shots from that trip. Yup, one must always travel with a good camera!

I have Bahamas on the brain this morning.

Made this sunset image end of day at Tiger Beach in March 2006 while out on a 10 day Bahamian shark diving safari aboard Jim Abernethy's Scuba Adventures vessel, M/V Shear Water. I figured it might make a nice background for a double page photo spread. Luckily, two different photo editors agreed.

Why I Think This World Should End. Paying It Forward!

Perhaps one of the best videos I've seen since, I dont know when, about humanity and the meaning of love. Put another way, the love you take is equal to the love you make. Share this one far & wide. If any video should have ever gone viral, this one is it!

The Only Good Shark... Is A Live Shark!

Yes, quite often the shortest, simplest, and most powerful statement can be said in less than 10 seconds.

Browning Passage HideAway Dive Resort Trip - August 17 - 23, 2014.

Ahhh, here we are with the boys from Milwaukee who graciously proclaimed that I was now an honorary member of “Team Zero!” The back-story to “Team Zero” is that one of their local Great Lakes dive charter operators dubbed them “Team Zero” because they always arrived at the boat prepared for some wreck diving and there were zero issues with them and their dive gear. All highly experienced wreck divers, it was so great to witness their enthusiastic reactions after every dive British Columbia’s Browning Passage. They were all totally blown away with the local marine life and its diversity. Good times!! From here on out boyz, know that you’ll always have a “Team Zero” member in British Columbia. Thanks again, guys, it was a trip! Will name everyone in order of appearance from bow to the stern - John de Boeck, Michael Kron, Mark Kolba, Cal Kothrade, Jason Grochowski, Jett Britnell, Dirk Wihelm, Steven Wimer II.
