Chris Gug, or just Gug (pronounced “Goog”) for short, is a Fort Lauderdale-based full-time professional underwater photographer. For more than 15 years, he had been exhibiting in some of the most prestigious galleries and museums around the world, but in 2012, opened the Gug Underwater Gallery in Fort Lauderdale, FL to showcase his love of viewing the sea as fine art for the home, office, or public display. He is regularly published in numerous magazines, and teaches underwater photographic technique both locally and around the world. 

As a proud member and sponsor of the club, Gug also teaches regular mini-seminars at monthly SFUPS meetings, and is an authorized dealer & consultant for Aquatica, Ikelite, Amphibico, and more. He is a techno-geek, and loves pushing the limits of camera and computer equipment, and although all the images in this gallery are unmanipulated (aside from a raw conversion), he is always staying abreast of (and creating!) the coolest trends in still & video post-production.
