Short Bio of Marty Snyderman
Honored with the 2018 NOGI Award in the Arts by the Underwater Academy of Arts and Sciences, an EMMY Award for cinematography, a Reaching Out Award in 2008 as a photographer presented by the Diving Equipment and Marketing Association (DEMA), Marty Snyderman is a widely published still photographer and author who has worked to conserve and share the magic of the undersea world for more than four decades.
Marty served for many years as the Marine Life Editor of Dive Training magazine (something he hopes to continue) and the Senior Editor of California Diving News. His still photography has been used by many major diving and wildlife publications, natural history museums, and aquaria. Representing Nikon Inc., Sea&Sea USA, and through his own courses, Marty taught underwater photography in person and offered instruction as a magazine columnist for more than four decades. He enjoys sharing what he has learned and takes a lot of pride in his ability to teach others. In the late 1990s, Marty produced Depth Perception, the first online course on underwater photography.

Marty served on the Board of Trustees of the Reef Environmental Education Foundation from 2010 until 2019.
Marty’s most recent venture is partnering with Eric Riesch in 2021 to create Wise Divers Publishing (wisedivers.com), an entity that produces eBooks and hard copy versions that have focused on topics ranging from underwater photography, diving safety, diving history, and marine wildlife, with plans to continuously expand their line.
