2018 has been an incredible year of adventures here at TerraMar. From beach cleanups and incredible dives to chasing hurricane surf in the Northeast US – we’ve seen a lot.

Photography has an incredible ability to change the way that people understand our world’s oceans. And like music, it’s a universal language that we can all grasp.

On a personal note. Before 2018 I had never been diving before, and I had minimal knowledge of photography. And what I realized was that NOW is always the best time to start.  It’s never too late to learn something new – so get out there and experience the magnificence of nature firsthand. Dive beneath the thin blue line of the ocean surface and inspire others to do the same! If I can do it, so can you!
