We are delighted and honored to add photographs from two of the world's finest photographers. LeRoy French was a pioneer in underwater photography, developing techniques in the late 1950's that influenced the direction of the field over the next decades. An award-winning photographer and cinematographer, he has stayed close to his roots throughout his career. Included in LeRoy's exhibited photos is a shot that received an award at the International Underwater Film Festival.
Dr. John "Jack" Randall is generally regarded by his peers as the foremost ichthyologist of his generation and has spent more time in the water than many of the 600+ species he has discovered and named. In the late 1950's and early 1960's his technique of photographing "posed" captured fishes set the standard for subsequent scientific fish photography. These and his equally magnificent underwater photos of fishes from around the world have filled hundreds of scientific publications and at least a dozen books documenting the fishes of various regions. The exhibited photos are from his latest book, Reef and Shore Fishes of the Hawaiian Islands (2007, University of Hawaii Press). Enjoy the great photographs of these two diver-photographers. - George Burgess 9 Jan. 2008 Don DeMaria is a commercial fisher, diver, and underwater photographer operating out of Summerland Key in the Florida Keys.
