ABOUT OUR SPEAKER
Stuart became a certified diver in 1974, and purchased a Nikonos III later that same summer, at age 17 with a fraudulently obtained bank loan. Over the years he wasted countless rolls of film, but managed to learn a few things about the unique challenges of underwater photography while shooting shipwrecks and critters. His earliest published images were shot in the Cape Anne region of Massachusetts and published in a British newspaper at the age of 22.
Many years, and many cameras later, Stuart moved to a digital system which re-kindled a fading interest. The improving visibility in the Great Lakes opened up new opportunities for wreck photography.
Since then, images have been published in several magazines including Diver, Alert Diver, Sport Diver and Zoomer. His images can be found on many of the area’s dive shop’s websites, several Caribbean resorts and on the BC Dive Industry Association’s promotional material. He has also contributed to e-publications about Belize and British Columbia.
Last fall, Stuart was the subject of an 8 page article in Diver Magazine, where he finally achieved his 15 minutes of fame! Here is Stuart’s official website:
