Honest, real, and passionate describes both Christopher Paparo and his work. Chris currently writes for a number of fishing and outdoor magazines and was the senior aquarist at Atlantis Marine World since its inception in 1999 until 2012. He consistently captures the essence of our environment through the brilliant colors and subject matter in his photography.

Born on Long Island, Chris Paparo graduated from Long Island University–Southampton with a degree in marine biology. Primarily a self-taught photographer, his science background greatly influences his penchant for macro-photography.

Christopher’s imagery moves beyond the literal, mundane and common. His visually creative photographs are the result of experimenting with scale and perspective. Ultimately, his calm and patient approach to capturing his subject matter results in a unique visual point of view. For Chris, this endeavor is an ever changing, ever challenging labor of love.

Join us tonight for an exciting look at life under the waters we paddle here on Long Island.
