        About Cathy Church

        As a child, Cathy Church was an avid biologist and bird watcher. She earned a BS in biology from the University of Michigan where she learned to SCUBA dive. She was studying marine biology at Stanford University's Hopkins Marine biology station in Monterey, California when she met Jim Church, a scuba diver who was pioneering underwater photography and writing for Skin Diver Magazine in the early 60s. Cathy wanted to document her underwater work and spent many dives with Jim exploring ways to use the Calypso camera and flashbulb systems with homemade accessories.

  • Environmental Issues
    • Most people do not have the time to lobby, study, fund, and fix our environmental problems. By yourself, your tiny little voice will get lost and misplaced. But when we form massive groups, we can flex enough muscle to fix virtually anything!

      Everyone Should Support Three Environmental Organizations:

      -- One World-Wide  -- One Nation-Wide  -- One Local

      We Cannot Join Them All, So You Must Pick And Choose Your Battles.

      I have personally chosen two battles: stop shark finning and save leatherback turtles. You may choose to protect elephants from poachers, or stop over fishing. But concentrate on one thing and do something -- anything, over and over.

      There is no single cause that is more important than another, as they all work together.

      For shark finning, I support http://www.sharktrust.org, an effective UK group. Many of you contributed to my request for money to install billboards in China where the famous Chinese basketball player Yao Ming is pictured asking everyone to just say no to shark fin soup. We collected enough $20 donations to pay for 100 billboards! This campaign was immensely successful. Collectively that money worked well.

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.

 

Theunis Neethling

Theunis is back!! Tee (as we all him) hails from South Africa. He has worked with us from 2009 to 2016 and was able to come back in 2017 after having been away for a year. He can do just about everything--especially teaching all levels of underwater photography and all types of cameras. He handles all kinds of repairs and fix-its, internet issues, and can even print and frame gallery images. He is a NAUI SCUBA instructor and is also the captain of Cathy's charter boat. He is truly a man of ALL trades and is always designing amazing new inventions to solve all sorts of mechanical problems.

 

Gill McDonald

Gill is an experienced and enthusiastic underwater photography instructor. She has published articles, been photographer of the week with Dive Photo Guide and taught for several years in Indonesia. She hails from Scotland and is a terrific asset to our photo centre.
