Each month we feature different interviews with dive industry professionals. The interviews are conducted and sponsored by Joe Cocozza of Pod Diver Radio. Here are the interviews of past “interviews of the month.”
Chris Kovaz is currently Digital Media Director for DiversOnly.com. You can hear him weekly on Divers Only Radio. He is an active diving photographer whose photos first appeared on DivingInDepth’s website several years back. He graciously agreed to appear on our site again and do an interview!

Chris, is a diving prodigy from Florida, but has traveled extensively all over the world. His love of underwater photography gradually developed after his father, Blaise, helped get him certified as a diver at the age of 12. After receiving a 2-mega-pixel camera and an Ikelite housing from Blaise, his career had finally begun. He became much more accomplished after completing his first class with Stephen Frink in 2005. After the improvements made in that short week, Chris knew photography was his future. Chris currently shoots a Canon 1Ds MarkII with a Sea Cam housing. Chris has been diving in extravagant places such as, Belize, the Bahamas, Utila, Roatan, the Galapagos, Fiji, and the Florida Keys.
Question: How long have you been involved in diving?
Graham Casden is the Executive officer from Ocean First Divers in Boulder, Colorado. He was first certified in Belize in 1999 and became a DM in 2003 and OWSI in March 2005.
If you thinking diving is not very popular in Colorado, think again. As Graham told me, “There are more certified divers per capita in Colorado than any other state.”
Graham also graciously agreed to be a photographer for DivingInDepth.com. To see his pictures you can go here:
