The netherworlds -1 2016

During the summer months of 2015, Southern California was experiencing one of the most expansive El Nino seasons on record . It had unseasonably clear water visibility and warm waters reaching into the high 70s, the Catalina coast (an island off of southern California ) became the most interesting underwater photo studio north of the Hawaiian islands.­ With the help of an eco friendly dye, a handful of wild souls and some surreal conditions catered by mother nature, a beautiful visual energy came to life with each shutter giving a grander meaning to the world beneath.
Two years in the making, dozens of wet boat rides, countless sun burns, endless freediving and thousands of images later, we have arrived.
Please enjoy the netherworlds.
