The Monterey Shootout 2012 Event Results

 
Day In The Life

GO ASK ERIN (Before and After)

THE MONTEREY SHOOTOUT… IT'S MORE THAN JUST A COMPETITION!
NCUPS, the Northern California Underwater Photographic Society, teamed up again with Backscatter Underwater Video & Photo to present this year's Monterey Shootout. 60 cold-water divers descended into the Monterey and Carmel area waters via shore and boat during a 24+ hour period, to capture competition entering stills and video. The event was kicked off with Friday morning seminars, geared toward the underwater shooter just getting started. Jim Decker discussed GETTING THE MOST FROM YOUR CAMERA, while Mary Lynn Price covered INTRODUCTION TO VIDEO WORKFLOW. Friday evening's cocktail reception, hosted by Backscatter, welcomed participants, their significant others and area locals for a fun evening of libations, snacks and camaraderie.

The social activities continued on Saturday night with awe-inspiring, underwater imagery by Berkley White - CENOTES, Marc Shargel - UNDERWATER IMAGES FROM THE WEST COAST OF NORTH AMERICA, Jason Bradley - PREPARATION IS KEY, BUT SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO BE LUCKY and Eric Cheng - WHALESHARKS OF ISLA MUJERES IN 3D. And Sunday Seminars attendees were given a real treat! Not one, but two seminars by Erin Quigley of GoAskErin, covering DIVING INTO THE DIGITAL DARKROOM, ESSENTIAL POST PROCESSING FOR UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHERS and PHOTOSHOP-THE DARK SIDE, DIRTY TRICKS YOU NEED TO KNOW.

EVALUATING, DELIBERATING… TOUGH WORK FOR A JUDGE.

This year's video judges, Jay Ireland, Mary Lynn Price and Russ Sanoian, had the task of selecting the top videos in three categories: Snapshot Macro, Snapshot Wide Angle and Montage. And this year saw more video entries than any previous year, making the judging process a challenging job. The key factors that the judges looked for were: critical focus of the subject, steady camera operation, well exposed frames and videos that showed a behavior or told a story.

Cloistered away in another room judging the photos were Eric Cheng, Jason Bradley and Kevin McDonnell, who evaluated, deliberated and argued the merits of hundreds of images entered into this year's Monterey Shootout. Despite many good and very good images, what set the winners apart from the pack were not only proper focus and exposure, but lighting, framing and shooting a common subject in a new, interesting way.

SEE YOU AT THE 2013 MONTEREY SHOOTOUT!

To all of our gear and travel sponsors: we appreciate your continued support of NCUPS, Backscatter and Monterey diving, and we could not pull off this event without your generous sponsorship. Thank you!

To all of the judges, presenters and seminar speakers: we recognize that you all donate your valuable time to support The Monterey Shootout and promote our craft through education. Your collective experience and wisdom garners more than appreciation from our diving community. Thank you for your time and efforts!

And lastly, to all of the 2012 Monterey Shootout participants: we hope you love Monterey diving as much as we do, perhaps found a new favorite dive site in the Monterey-Carmel area and made some new dive buddy friends during this year's Shootout weekend. Thank you for participating!

We look forward to seeing you next year at the 2013 Monterey Shootout for another weekend of diving, learning and fun!.

Jay Ireland JAY IRELAND - Jay's innate understanding of animal behavior is a key ingredient for the success of both Bradley Ireland Productions and The Imaging Foundation.

Logging over 2,000 dives at Cocos Island alone, Jay's photos of shark finning were used to initiate a successful campaign to protect Cocos. Later, his experience and his images were incorporated into the petition, which won the Island its UNESCO World Heritage status. Ireland's images have appeared on countless magazine covers worldwide, calendars postage stamps and lottery tickets. Jay's work with Paramount Productions won Wild Things the top rating in sweeps week. His work documenting the Humboldt Squid was showcased on National Geographic's Squid Invasion.

Marc Shargel MARC SHARGEL - Marc Shargel began showing his underwater photographs professionally in 1988. He had learned to dive a decade before that, while he was a student of biology and psychology at Stanford University, in 1978. Shargel spent the summer of '78 studying Marine Biology at Hopkins Marine Station in Pacific Grove, and he hasn't stopped diving since. As a teenager, he learned to develop and enlarge his own photographs, but it was the images he encountered underwater that motivated him to return to photography. Shargel has dived the California Coast from Humboldt County to San Diego. His underwater photo expeditions have taken him to such far-flung destinations as British Columbia, Mexico, Hawaii, Bali, the Caribbean, the Red Sea, and the Galapagos and Revillagigedos archipelagos.

In his decades of time spent under the sea, Marc Shargel has noticed slow but relentless decreases in marine life. In 2000 he participated in founding the first of two marine conservation organizations along California's central coast that he helped to lead. From 2004 to 2006 he served on a state panel charged with doing something that had never been done before: to protect a network of marine habitats along the central coast by mapping out a series of marine reserves no take areas to function as refuges and nurseries for everything living in our ocean. In 2007, those new marine reserves went into effect. The state's process to make the network of marine reserves state-wide moved on to other regions, and so did Shargel. He began to create coffee table books, to communicate visually to decision makers and the public exactly what the proposed areas might protect. In 2008 his first book of photography, Wonders of the Sea: North Central California's Living Marine Riches, was published. He has since published two more volumes in the series, one on Far Northern California and one on Southern California. Ironically, the last portion of the state on which he has yet to produce a book is his native Central California.

"Marine life photography began for me as a way to make my favorite moments last, to make the spectacularly colorful images I love persist. I quickly learned it was the best way to share my passion with others. Photography has now evolved into a way I can help life in the ocean communicate to humanity. Humans build with straight lines and square corners," he says, "Nature suggests graceful curves but doesn't enforce them. The living Ocean is indescribably beautiful: it must be seen. I hope my photographs will communicate some of that beauty, and motivate people to preserve it."

Marc Shargel's photographs have been exhibited at galleries and art shows throughout the San Francisco and Monterey Bay areas. He has won awards from local clubs and national and international contests. His photographs have published in books, magazines, commercial brochures, and numerous environmental publications, both online and in print. Marc is a popular presenter at dive clubs, schools and community groups. His fine art prints are shown at art events in Santa Cruz County.

Since 1984 Shargel has made his home near Santa Cruz, California, where he now lives with wife Chris and son Bodie.
