Larry Polster

Larry Polster started diving 1968 with the Untied State Marine Corps in Southern California and continued as a civilian traveling most Caribbean destinations.

His first film camera was an inexpensive Reef Life in late 1999 during a trip to Australia and quickly upgraded to digital when Nikon introduced the Coolpix 5000. Next came a DSLR Nikon D70 and currently a Nikon D300, Ikelite housing, D125 and D160 strobes with INON 45 degree view finder. His favorite lens is 105VR with external Subsee wet lens.

He recently retired and is traveling the world in search of nudibranchs and other macro creatures. Lembeh and Gangga Island in North Sulawesi were the first major dive destinations to introduce him to nudibranchs and other strange critters. Then Philippines, especially Anilao, Dumageute, and Puerto Galera for great photo opportunities.
