Jaime first got started in photography in her National Geographic open water dive class. It was so amazing to take a camera under water to take pictures of the fish, coral, and kelp. (However, it was very difficult to get a handle on until the scuba diving bouyancy skills were mastered.) Scuba diving and underwater photography became her new passion in addition to 10 years of competing in triathlons and running races. While being out on the side lines recovering from a few injuries, it dawned on Jaime to take her underwater photography passion "to the surface" and combine it with sports photography on land. And that was that. She went to local pickup soccer and ultimate frisbee games to start capturing the action. Jaime photographed all the sport games for the United Way charity campaign at Agilent Technologies. This included tennis, basketball, ping pong, and kickball. Additionally, her mom started doing many running races while being a leader for Students Run LA, so she went to her events to get images of her running. Other work includes shooting road and trail running races in southern California. Currently she shoots freelance for Max Preps, which includes high school varsity sports in Ventura county.
Michael has been doing art, graphic design, and technical illustration for several years. Eventually he got interested in diving in part due to seeing underwater artwork by others. From the beginning Michael had chosen to take a camera along so he could start to get his own reference photos in order to do more artwork. In the process, he became completely enamored of diving, as well as being totally captivated with shooting
photography and video. He holds an MSDT (Master Scuba Dive Trainer) dive instructor rating, and specializes in teaching underwater photography and videography. Michael also specializes in photo realistic airbrush painting and is the owner of Gorilla Airbrush
. When not scuba diving or airbrushing, Michael enjoys playing basketball and cycling. And due to Jaime's influence he's making things go full circle and is now doing triathlons.
