    Walt Stearn's Biography

    In addition to publishing the online magazine Underwater Journal, Walt Stearns experience in the marine and outdoor environment is well represented through a wide and highly prolific range of underwater and top side imagery that have grace the covers pages belonging to a broad array of publications. His most prolific stories, write-ups an images in magazines like Boating, (as a contributing editor 1985 to 1993), to Salt Water Sportsman, Sport Fishing, Field & Stream, Nature, Men’s Health, Men’s Journal, Outdoor Photographer, Caribbean Travel & Life, Caribbean World, Skin Diver (1995 to 1999), Scuba Diving and Sport Diver, since their premiere issue in 1994 to present. In addition to his work these widely-recognized magazines, Walt has also served as a key participant in several marine sport related films and documentaries from African Shark Safari, Mystery of the Whale Cave to Discovery Channel’s Shark Week - Perfect Predators (lemon sharks in Florida).

    Walt’s travels have taken him across a broad extent of the Bahamas & Caribbean, Central America and Eastern Pacific to corners of Tropical Western Pacific and South Africa, when asked where his favorite place to dive is? His answer will be, “Preferably in the water.”

    DIVE EXPERIENCE

    * Logged over 5000 dives with the max depth of 225 feet.
    * SCR – Drager Dolphin (TDI) 2000.
    * Cave (NACD) 2001.
    * CCR - Inspiration Classic (IANTD) 2003.
    * CCR - KISS Sport (TDI) 2006.
    * CCR - KISS mixed gas (TDI) 2009.

    Walt's endeavors in underwater photography began with a Nikonos II back in the late 1970’s evolving into housed high-end, 35mm cameras like Nikon’s F3 and F4 series during the 1980’s and 90’s to digital in 2003.

    "My current choice is Subal’s ND30 housing for the Nikon D300 as it is relatively small and lightweight (as aluminum housing’s go), making suitable for travel. Lighting is provided by Sea & Sea’s YS-120 and YS-250, with the optics (lenses) comprised of three favorites - Tokona’s highly acclaimed AT-X 107 (10-17mm) fish-eye zoom, as well as their newer AT-X 124 (12-24mm) PRO DX II for wide angle (my steak and potatoes) with Nikon’s 60mm AF-S lens for macro. Be it the size of a city bus to something as small a finger nail, I can get it.”
