STANIEL CAY

Hope all goes well for you. Cindy and I just returned from a week on Staniel Cay, Bahamas. One of the most beautiful islands we’ve yet seen. Definitely recommend making the effort to go visit if you have an opportunity. Enjoy a few images below. Jimmy Staniel Cay Images – Images by James White


FEELING THANKFUL I AM NOT A SCALED SARDINE

Had another great day of fishing/diving with my cousins this past weekend.  At one point we spotted this baitball about 17 miles offshore.  At first Tim and I were excited to jump in and photograph the scene until we noticed the dozen or so blacktips voraciously feeding alongside all the spanish mackerel.  After watching the […]

WEEK TWO

Happy Tuesday! We are now moving into images made during week two of our trip.  This week began with a swim amongst the Dusky Dolphin pods that reside year round off of the Kaikoura Peninsula on the northeastern portion of the South Island.  Everyone should experience this swim at least once in their lives.  We […]


Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a safe NYE and a spectacular 2013!  Two photos below were taken last week in the Devil’s Den Spring near Williston, Florida.


Flourishing Ocean

  Living most of the year in a warm water climate has profoundly affected my perception about cold water diving.  Why would I purposefully enter frigid water when I know how enjoyable it is diving in the tropical ocean? One major reason for taking the frigid plunge is that in most instances the world’s temperate […]


SOME MODELS ARE EASY…

Large Brook Trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) in Emerald Lake, Montana

Photographing models is often challenging.  Diverse personalities abound among this demographic; the aggressive, the ellusive, the timid and the overconfident are all represented.  Many of the models with whom I work arrive on the job with a bad attitude or simply fail to arrive.  However, I have recently worked with a delightful group of models […]

BIODIVERSITY ILLUSTRATED

Biological diversity in an environment as indicated by numbers of different species of plants and animals is widely regarded as a positive feature.  Yet it is a concept that is often discussed, but seldom seen in today’s world.  Hopefully the following photographs will help illustrate the beauty underlying this important concept. I hope this finds […]


Let us gather and watch the Florida boy freeze…

Amazingly, it’s almost time for Cindy and I to shed our Montana ties and flee the cold like trueblooded Floridians:)  Already the morning bike ride to work seems much colder.  I know that soon it will be the gloves and not far thereafter the snow. At least that is how I recall our time here […]


Bonaire is Something Special

It’s quite easy to conjure up a lot of wonderful things to say about a dive trip to the island of Bonaire.  That was my impression after hearing others discuss prior trips they have taken there over the years.  Cindy and I just returned from our first trip to Bonaire and I now understand what […]


Another Day In the Office

Underwater photography from the Gulf of Mexico in September, 2010.


The Gulf Looks Beautiful

Hey there.  I took a dive trip out with my cousins for Spiny Lobster Sport Season last week.  My cousin Tim and I made four dives between 70 and 95 feet and saw a lot of interesting things.  Most striking of which was the incredible water visibility.  We jumped overboard with our masks on just […]


Aventura primero de agua dulce…

Get a small taste of cavern diving in Devil’s Den.


Life Among the Mangroves

Here’s a little story about an afternoon floating among the Mangroves in Terra Ceia Bay, Florida.


Saving "C.C.", The Manatee

Last Sunday, I received an email from Dr. James (“Buddy”) A. Powell of Sea to Shore Alliance.  Sea to Shore Alliance is a locally based conservation group working globally to find solutions that will reduce threats to endangered aquatic species, such as manatees, northern right whales and sea turtles, as well as protect or restore […]
