More and more people want to bring their cameras into the water. Some just want snapshots in the family pool while others want to document the underwater world for magazines, books and the internet. Join underwater photographer Larry Cohen as he talks about the use of cameras when used underwater.

Underwater Photography Journal: Tiger Sharks in the Philippines

How do you know if there’s a tiger shark swimming nearby if you can’t see it?

I was asking myself this very question on an underwater photography documentary expedition to the Western Philippines a few years ago. It didn’t take very long to start seeing the clues.

Happy Birthday Jacques

Jacques-Yves Cousteau would have been 100 years old today. He was born on June 11, 1910, in southern
France,
and died on June 25, 1997, at age 87. He was a pioneer of underwater diving and filming. If he were still around today, I’m sure he would love to have a look around B&H’s SuperStore, which carries a full line of underwater photographic and video gear.

Adventures in Egypt

Most of my photographic interest involves working underwater. However, some places in the world are as interesting above water as below. A trip to Egypt would not be complete without visiting the Pyramids and other sites of the ancient world. Planning such a trip is a logistical nightmare, though, involving domestic flights and ground transportation. It is best to use a travel agent who specializes in your destination.

Photography in the Galapagos of Mexico

As I prepare for another dive off the Island of Roca Partida, everything is perfect, as it has been the past five days. It is a beautiful day, sea conditions are ideal, and I am thinking about the wonders I will photograph as this amazing trip is coming to an end. I check all my life support equipment and camera gear before boarding the Zodiac (rubber raft type boat).
