Skip Stubbs in the Sea of Cortez (2005)

My good friend and diving partner Skip Stubbs recently returned from his annual October visit to La Paz. As usual, the focus of the trip was underwater video of the excellent schools of fish that inhabit the reefs in the Sea of Cortez. For those of you who do not know Skip, let it be said that he is a skilled marine videographer with a lengthy and growing list of broadcast credits. However, he has not been shooting still photos since the days of film. In addition to his hours in the water shooting video freediving and on tanks, on this trip Skip also spent a lot of time shooting still photographs with impressive results. It is amazing what great images a skilled diver can make with a modern digital camera and good light. Impressive shots!

Skip’s images are spread over three pages: here, here and here.
