Ethan Daniels is a freelance marine photojournalist and dive guide currently based in Berkeley, California. Annual travels and assignments take him all over the planet, from the rich, temperate waters of the northern Atlantic and the eastern Pacific, to the warm, diverse Coral Triangle, Andaman Sea, and Caribbean. Having spent his youth on the shores of New England, Ethan became fascinated with the bizarre marine life that thrives beneath the water line. He studied biology at Bucknell University and completed graduate school at the University of Guam Marine Laboratory in 1999, focusing on the behavioral ecology of reef fishes. Ethan spent most of a decade living in Micronesia, studying and photographing the region’s unique marine habitats, flora and fauna. Favoring parts of the world that are off-the-beaten-track, he currently combines his passions for natural history and photography to guide, write, and help preserve the integrity of the world’s marine ecosystems. Ethan’s latest work can be found at and his first solo-authored book, Under Cape Cod Waters, published in 2010 by Union Park Press, is now on bookshelves and available online. His upcoming book, Coral Triangle Seascapes, to be published by Asian Geographic, is due out in late 2011.
