Paul Gruner

By the time he was learning to ride a bicycle, Paul had begun his passion for the undersea world. His parents had introduced him to diving when he was only nine years of age with a home made air buoy. As a teenager if he wasn't in school he would be found underwater either collecting tropical fish for aquariums or catching lobster. Soon his passion had turned to photography. Paul credits his years of collecting tropical fish with the ability to capture the personalities of his many underwater subjects.

His friends often refer to him as the fish whisperer. His photography expresses vibrant colors seldom seen in the underwater world. Paul's love of photography and diving has taken him to many different parts of the world, some of which include the Bahamas, Honduras, Curacao, Mexico, Tahiti, Rangiroa, Bora Bora, Indonesia, South Africa, Maldives, Red Sea, Palau, Cocos Island, Australia, Thailand, Myanmar, Fiji and most recently to Cuba. Today, Paul is the father of two children which both share in his passion for marine life. He has a dental practice in both Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter Florida. If he isn't fixing teeth you may find him in some remote part of the world with a camera in hand.
