Happy Snapping, ERNEST H. BROOKS II

4 Feb

Legendary underwater photographer, educator and adventurer Ernie Brooks, who worked together with Jacques Cousteau for 17 years training Calypso’s photographers, still travels through the world taking black and white pictures of the things that touches his heart.

 

Ernie Brooks spent his 80th Birthday the only way he know how. He spent it diving in North Sulawesi, Bunaken Island, with PADI Five Star Resort Living Colours.

When ask how he got into underwater photography he said ” underwater photography became his interest when he was participating swimming competition in his teens. loved swimming underwater! I entered the three mile swim off Santa Barbara and won three years in a row. But on the fourth year when I was a senior in high school I looked down and I saw the kelp we were swimming through. Light rays were going through and I could see the fish on the bottom. And I stopped swimming and saw the beautful ocean. I lost the race.”

 

We are glad he did.

Happy birthday Ernest Brooks from all at PADI and Living Colours Dive Resort.
