  • Grand Cayman Diving

    On my most recent trip, my main focus was not on shooting video – it was being there for my dive buddy – a brand new diver. So, I did several dives without a camera and didn’t have my camera on the very best dive of the trip. But I still managed to get a few cool shots.

  • Kraken Solar Flare Max Video Light Review

    kraken solar flareMy first impression when seeing the Kraken 10,000 lumen Solar Flare Max underwater video light was how nicely crafted they are. The light is incredibly durable with metal construction and a strong glass dome for the LED lights that spreads the light underwater. It also comes with a neoprene cover for the dome  and nice soft carrying case – similar to a camera bag. I was on a “roughing it” type live-aboard with no accommodations for camera gear. So having such large and heavy lights along was challenging. But the Solar Flare lights provided such beautiful illumination that it was worth the struggles.

  • i-Torch Venom c92 Video Light Review

    After years of using older and less powerful lights, or relying on filters and manual white balance, I had the pleasure to test out the new iTorch Venom c92 video lights. The results were undeniably improved, with clean, vibrant colors and far more detail. So… I will never go without good quality video lights again.P1010447_web

  • Knock on Wood - Altered Esthetics Gallery
    Margo will have paintings in the show “Knock on Wood”
    Jinx! AE has a serious case of bad luck.

    AE has a serious case of bad luck. More than a dozen artists channel myth, folklore and personal experience to create art that visualizes omens, superstitions, and curses. The drawings, paintings and sculptures on display represent a variety of artistic mediums and techniques, with imagery ranging from scary to sublime.

    Sarah Miller will be reading cards during the Knock on Wood opening from 7:30-9:30. Sarah has been studying tarot for 15 years and has been actively reading cards for others since 2007. For those who are new to the idea of a tarot reading, it is best to take a few minutes to reflect on a question, or current life situation that you can share with Sarah. She will use the tarot cards as a means to provide guidance in regards to what you bring to the table. At the opening event, readings will be limited to 10-15 minutes (1-3 questions).
    Event Dates:
    Thursday, October 3, 2013 (Gallery Hours) to Thursday, October 24, 2013 (Gallery Hours)
    Opening Reception:
    Friday, October 4, 2013 – 7:00pm to 10:00pm

  • Amberjack Hole

    Amberjack Hole is located 32.2 miles outside of Sarasota, FL – in the Gulf of Mexico.
    Footage shot by Underwater Cinematographer Margo Cavis.
    Special thanks to Greg Galford and Florida Underwater Sports!


    This footage was taken for a tech-scout for a movie I was working on. I was scheduled to shoot the following day – so my lights had not arrived in the mail yet – but I wanted to see the site anyway. So, without lights, I did not get much color. There were several storms recently – so the water was just starting to clear up. It was still a cool site! We saw lots of fish, 12 Lion fish (not good), 3 different types of sharks, 2 giant grouper & a small school of barracuda.

    Unfortunately the scene got canceled from the movie at the last minute – so all I have is this footage.
