Jean-Michel Cousteau/Body Glove Dive Photoshoot

Just got back from a day and a half photoshoot in Catalina with 2 legends in the Dive Industry.  At age 86 and still diving Co-Founder of Body Glove, Bob Meistrell and Jean Michel Cousteau who is the son of legendary Jacques Cousteau.  I came over on the Body Glove boat and we met up with Jean Michel who was hosting a family dive camp on Catalina Island.  We were there for a product shoot with new co-op wetsuits and other products between Body Glove and JMC.  Never had to sleep on a boat before and that took sometime to get used to while trying to sleep. Thank god the boat ride back home was a lot smoother than the way to Catalina. Only one person was over the side throwing up his breakfast!

This is the coolest thing I have seen in California. My father is a huge Cousteau fan, I think he has watched every show they have been on. Thanks for sharing, I love your work!

Your welcome Lisa. Yeah, it was pretty cool hanging out and getting to dive with Jean Michel. He is a very nice man and has loads of stories to tell.

Marine life is really amazing life, there are many types of attractive, beautiful, dangerous pelagic, bladder wrack, plant and also many other thing we don't know about them, We should applaud their courage, who have capture these amazing picture from deep salted sea's water, to keep their life in great danger.
