Hi! My name is William Rhamey, and I am an American living in Nice, France. This is where I dive and take 99% of my photos. Almost all of my photography work is done while freediving (which means with no scuba tank, just good old fashioned breath holding).
I am not a professional photographer. In my “real” job, I work for a promotional marketing company based in the US. My job title is “Electronic Marketing Director” which means that I handle all of the email, electronic newsletters, e-commerce site design and production (I have a team based in the US for doing the programming work). I work directly with several fortune 500 companies, and our company is in the top 1% of our industry. Since all of my job duties deal with electronic media. I can easily do my job from home, which allows me to work from Nice, France.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy photography, diving, free diving, hiking in the Alps, traveling (which I don’t do enough of), and the occasional video game.
My first snorkeling experience was in Costa Rica. Growing up in land-locked WI, I never had tried it as a youngster, so I was a little apprehensive. But I was really surprised at how natural it felt to me, never having done it before. I remember it well, the water was clear, we saw a good variety of fish, and I saw my first eel.
Several years ago, I moved to Nice, and since then, the sea has consumed more and more of my thoughts and more and more of my time. I now dive and free dive regularly here every week. This is why I started this site; to share my experiences and love of the Mediterranean Sea with others. I figured by offering up this site as a resource for others, I might help them to enjoy these precious azure waters in the same way that I have. I also operate a second site for my top-side daily shots: http://www.w3rks.com.
If you are interested in more information about this site, or want to get in touch with me, you can reach me at this email address: email@example.com.

Just a note that any and all proceeds go towards training, photo gear upgrades, insurance, dives, and anything that helps me keep taking photos. Everything goes back into the cause:
