Dan Crowell

I've been diving for nearly 30 years now, achieving international recognition exploring the underwater world as the Skipper of the now legendary dive boat "SEEKER". The Seeker was made famous as the back drop of several extreme diving adventure books including the best seller "Shadow Divers" and in a 2 hour NOVA special titled "Hitler's Lost Sub", which was my fist professional shoot. I'm no longer at the helm, but I'm still heavily immersed in the underwater world as a cinematographer and TV producer. I developed my diving skills in the trenches of NYC as a commercial hard-hat diver and as a pioneer of technical scuba diving that I developed from the deck of my vaunted dive boat. As an underwater cinematographer my career began as news crews and TV producers showed up to document our exploits. The underwater DP was always ill suited for the extreme diving conditions we were about to encounter. I grabbed the camera and I guess you could say the rest is history. At that moment I recognized the opportunity to combine my passion to explore the underwater world with the long line of artistic genes that run in my family. Since those days I've been actively shooting footage across the globe in some of the most challenging condition imaginable, both in and out of the water. In early 2000 this caught the eye of Kralyevich Productions, Inc. (KPI) who produced 20 episodes of the History Channel's "Deep Sea Detectives" where I was hired as underwater DP. In 2007 I was the field and co-producer for my own limited series for Discovery's Military Channel titled "Quest for Sunken Warships". Today I'm working with the USS Monitor National Marine Sanctuaries and Rutgers University's RU-27 Atlantic Crossing projects as field producer and of course underwater cinematographer where we've used an array of Sony HD production gear.
