NCUPS Meeting June 9th, 2017 7:00-9:30PM: Ethan Daniels

Ethan will discuss the advantages of capturing imagery in shallow aquatic habitats while breath-holding. Having been in the dive industry for over two decades Ethan has focused primarily on snorkeling and free-diving photography over the past several years and has discovered a unique niche in the competitive world of nature photography. He will also be promoting the 6th Annual Capturing Critters in Lembeh this December 6-13, 2017 where he will be teaching UW photography techniques alongside Alex Tattersall, Martin Edge, and Sascha Janson in the world’s foremost critter-destination.

Ethan’s Bio:
Ethan Daniels is a photojournalist and guide currently based in El Cerrito, CA. Annual travels take him all over the planet, from the rich temperate waters of the northern Atlantic and the eastern Pacific to the warm, diverse Coral Triangle and Caribbean Sea. Favoring parts of the world that are relatively off-the-beaten path, he combines his passions for natural history and underwater photography to guide and write in hopes of promoting marine science and the security of aquatic ecosystems worldwide. Ethan now runs Coral Triangle Adventures, LLC, a snorkeling company that brings guests through regions with the most incredible shallow reefs on Earth. Ethan’s photography can regularly be found in Alert Diver, Scuba Diving, Sport Diver, EZ Dive Magazine, and many others. He has three books in publication: Under Cape Cod Waters, published in 2010 by Union Park Press and available on Amazon.com, Coral Triangle Seascapes, published by Asian Geographic in 2012, and Marine Life & Natural History of the Coral Triangle, written with Lee Goldman and currently available on Amazon.com. His latest imagery can be found at OceanStockImages.com.
