    • 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.

Cathy Church

 Cathy has been taking photos underwater since 1965. She is a pioneer of photo techniques and is in five SCUBA halls of Fame.  Her work has been published in literally hundreds of magazine issues, mostly diving titles, but also travel magazines and newspapers, scientific journals. 

She has used many types of cameras since the early Rollieflex, Calypso and Nikonos cameras with flashbulbs to today’s digital cameras such as the Nikon D810 with fast, TTL strobes.

Her commercial advertising clients have included Kodak, Nikon, USVI, the cruise industry, Atlantis Submarine, and many more. She works well with ad directors to make sure that she is photographing what the client wants, while using her own skills to enhance the image to better fit their needs.

Cathy has a ready staff to assist as needed to model, place lights, carry cameras, etc. She knows the area around Grand Cayman to find just the right setting to meet clients’ needs.

Cathy is also available to travel to other locations (except to dive under the polar ice. Cathy laments that after living in the tropics for 40 years she can get cold in a Sauna bath, there is not a dry suit made that would protect her in such cold water.) 

 See Cathy's full bio here.

 

Jim Catlin

Jim first became interested in underwater photography over 16 years ago when working as a volunteer on a marine expedition to Fiji. After completing an MSc in marine science in 2008, Jim worked in the Caribbean and Egypt for various marine conservation NGO’s, carrying out marine surveys and training graduates and volunteers in marine flora and fauna identification. Before moving to Grand Cayman, he was working in Thailand as a professional photographer/ videographer and underwater photography instructor on board a dive liveaboard in the South Andaman Sea. Since starting work at the photo centre in 2013, his images and videos have won many international awards as well as being published in UK and North American DIVER magazine among others. As well as teaching and shooting underwater, Jim is our wedding and events videographer and Adobe Lightroom instructor.

 Adeline Wee

Adeline, or Addie, as she is frequently referred to, hails from Singapore and has been a dive instructor since 2002. She has dived extensively in Asia where she was introduced to underwater photography. If she is not busy shooting underwater, you can find her on land enjoying bird photography.

She was a very popular Underwater Photography instructor at Cathy Church's from 2009 - 2012 and we are delighted that she is back with our team! In her words "Working with Cathy Church has been a real eye-opener for me and I am constantly growing and learning new skills." Addie is keen to help you take your underwater photography to the next level. Addie uses the OMD-E-M5 , in a Nauticam housing and a Sea and Sea D1 strobe with ultralight Arms. Look for her incredible close-ups of the tiniest things barely visible on her Facebook page.
