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.”
