Graham Casden

Graham Casden is the Executive officer from Ocean First Divers in 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.”

Steven Anderson

Steven’s interest in underwater photography began in 1975, while living in Miami, Florida, where he was certified as an NASDS Advanced Open Water Diver. He has since expanded his diving education and now holds certifications for PADI Rescue, Enriched Air and Underwater Photography. He has been fortunate enough to travel  around the world and visit the many destinations that many divers and non divers dream of. His travels have taken him to locations such as Australia,  Belize,  and Grand Cayman, to name a few. Steven’s first camera setup was an Ikelite housing for an instamatic camera and he used natural light as his light source. In 1975, camera equipment was not as advanced as it is today. He now uses two different camera setups. The first digital setup is the DC200 and strobe made by Sea Life and the other is the DC500 with two digital strobes also made by Sea life. Steven often uses a wide angle lense and enjoys the big look which is a result of its use. He enjoys reading and learning from others who have chosen diving and underwater photography as a hobby and as a profession. Steven and his wife, Anne and two children, Kaitlyn and Connor live in Brentwood, Tennessee. His hobbies include saltwater aquaria, computers, travel, working on his photography, and reading his large collection of diving magazines. Many afternoons are spent looking at the thousands of photos which he taken and sharing diving experiences with friends. When asked “ Where is his favorite spot”? Steven’s reply is “They are all great and each location has it’s own claim to fame.”

Pete Nawrocky

Pete started diving in 1971 exploring the calm, balmy water off of Long Island NY. His interest in photography started in 1976. The equipment available to him was a Minolta SRT 201 in an Ikelite housing with a simarly housed Vivitar 283 flash. “I started photpgraphy to help explain to my parents why I was spending so much time in the water. Long Island NY is a great place for wreck diving and since I wasn’t traveling to the islands, I used what was available.” Pete specialized in NE wrecks and animals and coupled with his speaking ability found himself on the lecture circuit in 1983. An interest in cave diving led to photography in the same environment and eventually working for Dive Rite. His articles and photos are internationally published in a variety of media
