Channel Islands Invertebrate

While working on one of my first major photography/motion picture projects in the Channel Islands in California, I took an afternoon swim in a kelp forest with my Canon 5D and underwater housing and spent 30-minutes dancing along the open ocean with this beautiful jellyfish.  I managed to get a variety of fun images of these alien-looking creatures.jellyfish 

California Salmon Run

Today I began shooting underwater on a small creek in Northern California where the annual salmon migration has gotten underway. It was an amazing feeling  as these enormous salmon thrust their bodies upstream, often moving around my legs. Their purpose was unified and without doubt as these determined creatures made their journey upstream.
