events from a career in underwater photography
Mike's journeys to faraway places and strange environments were exciting, wondrous and sometimes quite dangerous. This book takes you to those exotic locations with Mike diving in fast currents, deep extremes and shark infested waters.
All of the stories in this book are true; from shark wrangling in Australia, to nearly blacking out and being swallowed into the abyss, and surviving an outright attack by a crazed Barracuda in the dark of night.
Backstory is a compendium of log notes, published stories, and distant memories of a career as an editorial underwater photographer.
