Diving Blue Heron Bridge, Underwater Photography

Some of you may know that I am working on a book, and for new viewers this video is to company that project. On this shoot we are looking for some invertebrates and other small animal for the book. 

Dive site is Blue Heron Bridge that is down by Phil Foster Park in West Palm, Fl. This site is a tidal site, best to dive on High Tide Slack (the calm moment between tides in and out). The water is clearest and makes for an easy shallow water dive. The first dive was at Low Tide Slack and I worked on Macro photographs. I later dove at High Tide Slack to get the full body photographs with better water.

This shoot is part of many shoots I am working on for my book, this is a project I started as my senior thesis at UCF. It is a book about the Mesoamerican Reef.

The Mesoamerican Reef Along The Coast Of Central America. This reef is the largest barrier reef system in the western hemisphere and the second largest barrier reef in the world. It extends over an area of 700 miles, with over 7,000 different species of fish. In total, the Mesoamerican Reef holds around 33% of known fish species.

All of these species need our help. I hope to shine some light on these amazing animals. The need to protect our ocean from growing souvenir trades, pollution from runoff, overfishing from unsustainable fisheries, along with many other threats plaguing this reef, is great. We need to educate and promote conservation efforts.

I hope you enjoyed this introduction to my book and stay tuned for more!
