An Underwater Photography & Video website for those who want to travel light!


Welcome to, an experimental website for underwater photographers and videographers who have decided that 35 lbs DSLR, 6 strobes and multi-lens HD video gears are not worth the trouble diving with!

We are located in Southern California, USA. Our digital underwater playgrounds are the waters of coastal Laguna Beach and Catalina Island but we travel all around the globe to seek the ultimate diving experience and bring back memorable photos and videos.

If you want to learn a few tricks to improve your underwater imaging techniques without sacrificing a leg and a kidney to buy an expensive gear, this website is definitely for you. If you are already a pro or an avid DSLR underwater imager, check out our galleries and, we hope, be suprised!

If you want to access all our tutorials, please register.


Jean-Yves, owner, webmaster, photographer, whatever.
