was born and raised in Milford, Connecticut on the Long Island
Sound. Larry became enamored of the natural beauty of the
Caribbean during his tour of duty with the U.S. Navy from 1969
to 1971. In addition to being a certified scuba instructor, he
received training in underwater photography during a course
taught by world famous underwater photographer Howard Hall.

landscapes, wildlife, and underwater wonders ever since. He has
photographed over 1000 weddings and special events; his pictures
have appeared in a variety of media including newspapers,
magazines, commercial catalogs, brochures, and websites.

camera everywhere he goes. He has countless images of the
Florida Keys—from high above to ground level and underwater.
Other stock photos include California, Oregon, and Arizona in
the United States and the cities and countryside of northern

Under Larry’s direction, she has honed her talent.
Photography is not Marianne’s primary occupation. By day, she
is office manager at San Pablo Catholic Church in Marathon. By
night, she makes beaded jewelry or performs marriage ceremonies
as a notary.
