Dabill, who posts photos and videos on his “Paul Dabill Photography” page, began shooting underwater photography in Florida in 2006, TCPalm.com reported.
Dabill started by fishing from the beach, but soon began angling offshore and then graduated to free diving and spearfishing.
“It was while spearfishing that I became fascinated with the underwater world that is at our doorstep here in Southeast Florida,” Dabill told TCPalm.com.
Dabill said he wanted to record what he was seeing underwater while spearfishing, so he attached a video camera to his speargun, the website reported.
He decided to upgrade his photography equipment in order to capture high-quality images. Dabill decided to buy a full-size DSL camera after seeing another diver in Hawaii using the equipment, TCPalm.com reported.
After that, Dabill began taking photos and videos in Palm Beach County and also in the Bahamas. That resulted in Dabill’s Facebook page.
