Link to 2012 Calendars, and Photo CDs for Screen Savers
The largest collection of high quality underwater photos/pictures/digital images
of marine/ocean life for the Pacific Northwest of North America.
  Most of the photographs are for Vancouver Island & the Vancouver region of British Columbia, Canada. Use this site to check out a scuba dive site before you go there.
As of July 25, 2012
over 2,049 photographs are posted. And 16 youtube videos.
Thirteen Marine/Ocean Calendars now available.
Over two thousand digital images as of October 25, 2009.
Over one thousand images as of March 1, 2008.
  This is a page dedicated to underwater photographs & video clips that I've taken at places that I've been to.
And has become British Columbia's largest collection of underwater marine photography
on the web/internet as part of my attempt at Photographic Documentation of Scuba
Diving Sites that I've been to. And to share my love of nature with you.
This is Vancouver Island's largest collection of digital images for scuba diving sites.
I purchased a camera in December of 2005 for image analysis work for the farm robots project.
Ended up deciding to buy a camera that could be used for underwater photography, as well.
Note: I'm not a professional biologist, so some animals may be named incorrectly.
Due to economic circumstances I have had to move to Alberta for work.
There will be very few new pictures, but I will be posting some updates
 from pictures I never got around to posting. As well as adding scientific names,...
Note: Looks like I will have to modify some pages due to widescreen formatting issues.
 
Recent additions are for Newfoundland for July of 2012. It was a great place to go scuba diving, and a very friendly place to visit.
I now have some photos of marine life and dive sites from the east coast of Canada.

I'm hoping to buy a new camera with better automatic focusing properties. As several still fail to focus when I'm close to my subject.
Also it turns out my photos have limited commercial value as they are below 10 Megapixels. Considering a Nikon D300S or Canon 50D.

My collection of books on marine species is growing, so in time I will get better at identifying marine life. I believe that this is the largest collection, in the top ten, of high quality images/photos of underwater life for the Pacific Northwest of North America.  My thumb nails are larger than most sites main images. The average size of most of the images, after you click on a thumb nail, is 1024 by 768 pixels. Some of these ocean life photographs are now available as widescreen backgrounds. Set to 1680 pixels by 1050 pixels. If you have any requests for some of the images to be made into widescreen images please email me, and I shall consider your suggestion.

The main purpose of this page is to promote the natural beauty that forms part of the marine ecosystems of the Pacific Northwest of North America [and any other place that I happen to get to eventually]. Most of the images are from Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. The other purpose of this web site is to raise funds to continue to bringing you photographs so that you can have a greater appreciation of the amazing and beautiful life forms that live in the world's oceans. This web site is also a spin off of my original purpose to try and raise funds to buy parts for the farm robot project, and to hopefully raise funds so that I can higher some students or recent graduates to help start building the first farm robot prototype that I envision. You could be a sponsor,and have your name added to the robot itself and the sponsors list. I'm unable to do this on my own as I have too much student debt, and most of the money I earn goes into repaying my student loans. At the end of my studies student tuition had been doubled, and that none of us could have accounted for when we started our university educations.
