Working the Shoot
Sea of Cortez. Here, I'm pictured setting up for a shot of a Sea Lion. This photo was taken by Craig Dietrich. Craig is a professional underwater photographer that makes a living from his craft. He is a fantastic teacher and I was fortunate to learn a lot from Craig on this trip. In Craig's earlier career, he was an underwater photographer for the Navy, where he honed his skills.
Karen and I met Craig and his wife Julie at a art show where he was exhibiting and selling some of his work. During that encounter, Craig told us all about the Liveaboard trip to the Sea of Cortez that he was leading. Both Karen and I really like Craig and Julie and immediately went home and signed up for the trip he was leading in the Sea of Cortez. We were not disappointed in our liveaboard experience and had the opportunity to make friends with Craig and Julie, as well as several of their friends who also live in various parts of Florida.
