As my second season of business nears its end, I wipe my brow, take a deep breath and head into the 2015 holiday season. What an amazing, interesting and busy year it has been. Puget Sound Photography Underwater has been in business for about 19 months. I've made mistakes. I've misjudged my market and demographics, but as a result, I have learned a lot! I've made important improvements and crucial adjustments, I'm preparing for an amazing holiday season and looking forward to a fabulous 2016.
The 2015 Holiday and Gift show season is beginning. The first, largest and one of the most important holiday shows in the Northwest is next weekend at the Tacoma Dome. The 33rd annual Tacoma Holiday Food & Gift Festival begins Thursday, October 22 and runs through Sunday. Tickets are available online and are good for the entire weekend. Call for information at (800)521-7469. I will have my beautiful ready to hang fine art prints on metal, canvas, acrylic and more available for sale. Prominently featured will be my 2016 'Made In Puget Sound' 15 month calendar. You can also purchase copies of 'The Salish Sea: Jewel of the Pacific Northwest'.
Come enjoy the festivities, great food, gifts and fun. Don't forget to stop by booth 516 while you're there.

A few weeks ago I completed my latest video project: Red Octopus: Masters of Disguise. Learn about these small, plentiful and amazing animals that inhabit our local Puget Sound waters. Watch as they use their cyphons to propel themselves then change color and texture in a fraction of a second.
It has been a long and busy summer with Art Festivals almost every weekend, almost every Thursday to Sunday through the summer of 2015. I was able to get in some quality diving this summer and below are a few of my latest shots. A few of these shots are on sale now on canvas, metal, mat print and note cards.
