MARK from Yulee FL | Scuba Diver

Hello, everyone

I’m relatively new to diving and hold PADI Advanced Open Water and Nitrox certifications. Photography is also a passion, and taking my camera underwater is the chief reason I first started scuba diving. Although photography was my initial motivation, I have also discovered how much I enjoy the peace and tranquility of being underwater - the almost zen-like qualities of focus, calm, deliberateness, and a generally unhurried state of mind/being that make for a great dive.

Dive locations thus far include: Devil’s Den, Rainbow River (drift dive), St Thomas (Cartanza wreck & nearby reef), Jupiter FL (Wreck Trek & ledges drift dive), Pompano Beach FL, Destin FL, Ginnie Springs / Devil’s Eye, and Blue Grotto (Williston, FL).

At present I’m primarily focused on sharpening my diving skills (dive first, photograph last) and shopping for new u/w photo gear. In the meantime, though, I’m having fun shooting some short clips with a GoPro 5:

Cartanza Wreck - St Thomas, USVI (Nov 2018)

Devil’s Eye - Ginnie Springs, FL (Dec 2018)

Future endeavors include spearfishing and catching lobsters... Looking forward to meeting some new folks with shared interests and going on some memorable dives together (and photographing those memories)!
