Nannette and Bill are avid scuba divers who live in the Los Angeles area. They travel all over the world in search of great diving. Luckily, they find it almost everywhere they look, including in their own backyard in the rocky reefs off the California coast and the kelp forests of the Channel Islands! They love all kinds of marine creatures, but they both have a particular fondness for the weird and wonderful macro critters that are typically hidden away in the reefs.
Nannette shoots video underwater. Her current system is a “vintage” 2010 Sony CX-550V high-definition video camera in a Light & Motion Bluefin housing with Sola Video lights.
Lately she has also been dabbling in topside photography.
Bill shoots underwater as well as topside photos. He is currently shooting Olympus OM-D E-M1 II in a Nauticam housing. He uses a variety of strobes and lights.
The last few years he has been experimenting with different types of "stages" to provide interesting backgrounds for macro subjects.
