Secrets of Ocean Photography


See the USS Vandenberg sink to the bottom of the ocean, with breathtaking footage capturing the inrush of water. Renowned photographers David Doubilet and Brian Skerry go underwater to reveal these jaw-dropping images, as the retired warship becomes the newest artificial reef off the East Coast. Then, they head to the Pacific’s Phoenix Islands, an area where increased water temperatures due to an El Niño event have caused the coral to die.

Catpuring the Deep airs on Nat Geo Wild Tuesday August 17 8P et/pt.

Video Preview: Travel underwater with renowned photographer Brian Skerry as he dives into the depths to catch jaw-dropping images of coral reefs.

    As a boat captain and scuba dive master I can’t believe that I am watching professionals for National Geographic walking and crawling on a living reef!!! You would think that National Geographic would be able to find photographers and divers that have the good common sense to stay off the reef. When you show what we are lead to believe to be professionals touching corals it sets a very bad example to other divers, that would be like me telling my customers that it is okay to grab and touch what ever they want underwater. And people wonder why reefs are in such bad shape!
