Ethan Daniels is a freelance marine photojournalist and dive guide currently based in Berkeley, California.  Annual travels take him all over the planet, from the rich, temperate waters of the northern Atlantic and the eastern Pacific, to the warm, diverse Coral Triangle, Andaman Sea, and Caribbean.  Having spent his youth on the shores of New England, Ethan became fascinated with the bizarre marine life that thrives beneath the water line.  He studied biology at Bucknell University and completed his graduate work at the University of Guam Marine Laboratory in 1999, focusing on the behavioral ecology of reef fishes.  Ethan spent most of a decade living in Micronesia, studying and photographing the region’s unique marine habitats, flora, and fauna.  Favoring parts of the world that are off-the-beaten-track, he currently combines his passions for natural history and photography to guide, write, and promote the security of the world’s marine ecosystems.  Ethan’s work can be found Scuba Diving, Sport Diver, Scuba Diver Australasia, Asian Diver, Asian Geographic, Ocean Geographic, EZ Dive Magazine, Outside, Fifty Fathoms, Unterwasser, Tauchen, and other publications.  His latest imagery is on and his first book, Under Cape Cod Waters, published in 2010 by Union Park Press, is on bookshelves and available online.  Coral Triangle Seascapes, an upcoming book, is due to be published by Asian Geographic in April 2012.
