Instructor BioKeith Monroe was born and raised on the Gulf Coast in Lake Charles, Louisiana. He began his photography and diving career in 1977 as a US Navy photographer.
He has traveled the world extensively; from the remote coral reefs off Papau New Guinea and Palau, to man's "oceanic skyscrapers", the oil rigs of the Gulf of Mexico. He has dived the historical wrecks of the Red Sea, and the pristine waters of the Maldives.
He has captured the interaction of man, sea, and light as well as the vibrant colors of a myriad of sea creatures.
He has been published in a number of local and national publications including Natures Best Photography, Alert Diver, Newsweek, United Press International, Pacific Stars and Stripes, Surface Warfare magazine, Lake Charles American Press, and Lagniappe Sports World to name a few.
He has a special interest in capturing the unknown beauty of the Gulf of Mexico while promoting conservation of this natural treasure. In addition to underwater photography, Keith Monroe is interested in wildlife photography particularly in the coastal marshes and estuaries.
Keith has recently won the grand prize of the prestigious Ocean Views international underwater photography competition of over 25,000 entrants.
