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
