Diving Deep – The Life and Times of Mike DeGruy
A guy like Mike DeGruy had to be born in a place like Mobile, Alabama. Here, where five rivers meet the ocean, his fascination for water and all life within it became obvious at an early age – as did his unbridled energy and will to explore. After finishing a degree in marine biology DeGruy found a camera or rather it found him, sending him on his life’s trajectory of ocean exploration and education. DeGruy became one of the most prolific and skilled ocean cinematographers, a fierce advocate for ocean protection and a principal witness of the oceans’ precarious state. DIVING DEEP is not only a tribute to DeGruy’s life but also a celebration of the principal emotion DeGruy exuded and still elicits in all his work – a sense of wonder.
