Chris has always had a love for the underwater world. It all started when he was a very young child and his family took a road trip all the way from Southern Illinois to the beaches of Florida. Once he was back home to the corn fields, Chris always dreamt of being somewhere near the water.
After he graduated from college he decide to make his dreams a reality. He packed up his bags, moved to the U.S. Virgin Islands, and began his career as a diver and photographer. While he was in St. Thomas he received his first open water certification and started to study underwater photography.
Since then he has worked as a photographer and dive master in the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, the Isles of Hawaii, and now he lives in Jupiter, Florida.
Driven by his determination to protect the underwater world, he has made it his mission to capture the beauty of the ocean. He believes it is his job to help educate others in this world, hoping that as more people experience the underwater world, more people will want to protect it.
Chris has now traveled across the globe and has since become an award winning and widely published photographer. So come and enjoy his work as he brings you the magic of the underwater world through his lens.
