Puerto Morelos, Q.Roo, Mexico
It was great. I mean, it’s a blast directing underwater stuff.

When I was a kid, Jacques Cousteau was my hero and the person who inspired me to become an underwater explorer. I have many other people who inspired me after him, but he is still my all-time hero.
Being able to breathe underwater would be sweet.
I love storytelling, I love being a visual person, and it just made perfect sense to be an underwater photographer and explore the ocean and work with scientists.
Underwater, I experience space with my body. I’ll see a school of fish gathering and moving together and I’ll exclaim, ‘This is architecture.’
I am an underwater explorer, not a treasure hunter.
Russell James asked me to shoot underwater. He tied my feet under the water. I don’t know how many feet – maybe five, six meters. He tied me underwater and I had no air. Somebody had a tube, and they were giving me some oxygen, but I couldn’t really see anything. Everything was blurry. I’m waiting for the oxygen – that was the craziest thing.
