Overview

Chuck Nicklin has loved the water ever since spending his childhood days on a Massachusetts lake. When his family moved to California in the 1940s, Chuck literally immersed himself in the emerging sports of freediving and scuba diving. He became an expert spearfisherman, but it wasn't long before he tired of spearfishing and opted to try his hand at underwater photography.
The rest, as the say, is history. Nicklin's book, Camera Man, chronicles his adventurous life, from his early days as owner of the Diving Locker to a career as an underwater photographer for National Geographic and as a cinematographer on major motion pictures including The Deep, Never Say Never Again and The Abyss.
In Camera Man, Nicklin revisits the dawning days of scuba diving and shares stories of how his career as an underwater cameraman unfolded, from the day he became known as "the man who rode a whale," to his adventures traveling around the world diving with and filming majestic humpback whales and fearsome-looking great white sharks.
Included are guest essays from Nicklin's friends who've traveled with him, learned from him, and shared exciting adventures with him.
