Chris Kovaz is the owner and founder of CK Photo Tours, and at the age of 22, is already an experienced professional photographer. 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. Throughout the early stages of his career, he had doubts of his ability as a photographer. That was all put to rest 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. Chris also shoots open water divers in their checkout dives to capture their first time experience. Besides shooting under water photography, Chris also teaches underwater photography at local camera shops to help other photographers learn what he has so far in his short career. After accomplishing what he has thus far, Chris is dead set on seeing and photographing everything he can in the underwater world in his lifetime.
