February 2018 trip with images from the waters around San Miguel Island and Santa Cruz Island. These are part of the Channel Islands off shore in Southern California.
Photographic philosophy: Keith strives to portray his subjects as who they are and not just what they looked like when the shutter is released. This philosophy carries over to all of his photographic interests whether shooting landscapes, wildlife or our underwater denizens, the goal is to tell a story with his pictures.
He has been taking photographs since 1985 when he bought his first 35mm SLR camera, ahh...the days of film. Later that same year he became a certified scuba diver and took a borrowed underwater camera on his first dive in Monterey Bay. His desire to shoot underwater was fueled by the need to share with others what lies beneath the ocean's surface off the coast of California. Some of the projects he has worked on include collecting rock samples for the US Geological Survey in the waters around the Farallon Islands, Photographing a little known underwater oasis 4 miles off Pt. Sur in Central California as a member of Cordell Expeditions and capturing the beauty and power of Great white sharks.
He continues to pursue personal projects from shooting wildlife and the landscape in Sonoma County, California, marine life from Hawaii's reef fish, majestic Great white sharks and just about anything off the coast of California. Santa Rosa has been home since 1991 with his wife (high school sweetheart) and their two wonderful sons.
