    • Environmental Issues

       


      Grand Cayman is proposing the construction of a new cruise berthing facility that would totally remove the lovely wreck of the Balboa, one of my long time favorite places for teaching underwater photography. The dredging would also directly impact Soto’s Reef and Eden Rock — annual home to the incredible masses of silversides and tarpon. Silt from the dredging operations would expand for months as far as Sunset House where I teach and dive and could possibly smother and kill it.

       

       

      All of the environmental impact assessment clearly points all of this out, and also details the type of economic improvement for the island.

      We have formed a protest group called SaveCayman.org which points out the fallacy of destroying the very reefs that are the most popular for our cruise ship customers, etc. etc. and the severe economic fallout from so much environmental destruction as well as crowds, traffic, noise, and so on ad infinitum.

Reviews:

"It is a wonderful representation of your style and eye for the dramatic with a touch of love in each image." 

Lee Peterson, Marine Camera Distributors

"My Underwater Photo Journey is a treat for the eye and mind. Each plate is a masterpiece of composition, contrast, and incredible detail. The technical and visual quality of this publication is amazing. In it, you'll find remarkable photography in exotic locations that most of us will be lucky to visit in a lifetime of travel. If you are one of those who are trying to improve your skills at underwater photography, as you turn the pages you'll constantly be wondering, "How did she get such a great shot?" The neat thing is that on her website, the author answers this question for each picture in the book."

"When I met Cathy Church at her home base in Grand Cayman, I had some idea about her reputation, but not much. Far from looking down at a beginner, she was a patient and intensely enthusiastic teacher. During the lesson she also dove with me, putting my mind and camera gear through their paces. She went the extra mile by volunteering to come in on her day off, being late for a dinner party just to outfit me properly. I mention all this because her spirit of sharing knowledge with others weaves throughout this wonderful book."

"Now that I'm home and savoring her book, I appreciate her talent even more. It's hard to imagine the level of skill that it takes to get so close to her skittish subjects. A creature one inch long can fill half a page. Yet she shares her techniques in an on-line commentary that backs up each plate. For those of us trying to improve our own skills, the behind the scenes lessons are invaluable. It's like having a personal trainer at your fingertips."

"In this day and age much is written about the need to save our oceans and life on the reef. My Underwater Photo Journey provides powerful visual testimony of just why the world beneath the waves is worth protecting. The author, Cathy Church, is a big supporter of the Ocean Conservancy. But the book is far from a sermon, it's a stunning showcase for some of the best underwater imagery you'll find. The book is coffee table sized, with one or more photographs on every page, making a great birthday present or holiday gift for any diver, photographer, traveler, or art lover."

Unsolicited comment on Amazon from Paul Selden

"Church deserves praise for the quality of her work. Her camera has captured stunningly beautiful and thought-provoking images from Cayman's waters. Her book, My Underwater Photo Journey, is a masterpiece. More than another interesting coffee table book, the work is powerful art with a powerful message. Church's photographs, taken here and around the world are unforgettable."

Cayman Compass, unsolicited editorial, Tuesday 15th March, 2005

"Dear Cathy,

Just wanted to tell you that your book arrived yesterday, and I am in raptures over the ravishing sceneries that you have captured! The PDF-file with instructions was an added bonus that I value a lot, as I am trying hard to develop those skills to perfection, especially the handling of the different light sources.

...I am mainly a cold water diver, thriving in the Scandinavian waters most of the time. When you meter for the blue, I meter for the green. I still feel that your advice is extremely valuable, and will help me to take a leap forward in my personal UW photography skills.

It is seldom that a book of this kind gives me such instant satisfaction! Your book is a rare combination of art, marine biology and instruction that is hard to beat! Thank you for sharing your wisdom and your amazing Underwater Photo Journey with the rest of the world!

I sincerely hope that I will get the opportunity to meet with you one day! That would be an honor!"

Best regards, Ingvar Eliasson

"It is WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, SUPERB, ETC.!!!!!!!!" Carol Litchfield
