Andy Sallmon and Allison Vitsky are a photography/writing team that have been working together since 2010. Andy’s educational background in marine biology and Allison’s in journalism and veterinary medicine provide a unique perspective on our oceans and the life they hold.  Individually, their work has been recognized in numerous international underwater and nature photography competitions, featured on the walls of aquariums and museums, and published in books and magazines on diving, nature, and photography. The two combined have over 50 years of recreational and technical diving experience with more than 10,000 dives all over the world.  However, their favorite place to dive is the rich, temperate water of their home state: California.  Andy and Allison live together in San Diego.
