Some of the most stunning underwater photography of the Pacific Northwest can be found in the (electronic) pages of Pacific Northwest Diver, the bi-monthly e-Magazine of the Pacific Northwest Underwater Photographic Society. Since September 2011, this magazine has provided a venue for underwater photographers and videographers to showcase their work and share ideas on photography, diving, and travel. The benefit to the non-diving public is a collection of high quality glimpses of our underwater world — peeks below the surface that leap right off the screen.
And if you are a diver, there are beautiful and informative articles about places to dive, dive charters, resorts, and photographic gear, workshops, and other relevant events.
For example, the July 2013 issue of Pacific Northwest Diver announces the Salish Sea Celebration, an underwater photo and video contest featuring Pacific Northwest subjects: that is only photos and videos taken in the temperate waters of Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon.
The goals of this competition are to provide a venue where PNW photographers and videographers can share their work and to help educate and to inspire the non-diving public with the beauty and diversity below our waterline. As part of showcasing our amazing maine enviornment, they also plan on honoring our First Nations people for whom the Salish Sea was named. More contest and event information will be available this Fall, but the culminating event, presentation of photos and videos, is set for Saturday, October 4, 2014, at Town Hall in downtown Seattle.
