This shot was taken by my colleague and fellow underwater photography Susanna Pershern. We recently hired her on at the Submerged Resources Center and judging from both her shooting ability and the locations she put us on while filming she looks like a great investment in our future. In this image, I am shooting an isolated, but very healthy patch of elk horn coral.

Although most of my post here deal with underwater photography, for the past couple years I have been working with the Advanced Imaging and Visualization Lab at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to develop 3D HD films for the National Park Service. Together we have shot 3D in Yellowstone NP, Lake Mead NRA and the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor.
Currently we are shooting underwater 3D in Virgin Island NP as part of a production titled “Underwater Wonders of the National Parks” that I am producing for the NPS. The concept is to bring the underwater world of the of the NPS to the public in an informative, engaging and most of all immersive experience though the use of 3D. Together with WHOI we have developed portable 3D viewing systems to bring into classrooms and conferences to reach a wide and diverse audience. Stay tuned to the blog for upcoming shoots in Dry Tortugas NP in July, Isle Royale NP in September and Channel Islands NP in November.
