John Garza Portrait

John Garza

Raised in the shark capital of the world in New Smyrna, Florida, I grew up with a rather pessimistic outlook on ocean predators and the role they play in our oceans. It wasn’t until I moved to Hawai’i in 2010 that I met a group of individuals who forever changed my opinion of the ocean and its creatures. 

Since then, I’ve dedicated my time to photographing the underwater world in order to raise awareness and reshape the misconceptions humans have concerning my finned friends. Thank you for taking the time to enjoy my gallery. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns.
