Sharing our underwater world

Welcome to the website of Traverse City, Michigan photographer, Chris Doyal.

Here you will find photos from locations around the world and here at home.

I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoyed making them!

The great folks at Aquatica featured me in one of their ads after a trip to Fiji and added me to their gallery of shooters.

Photos of our April 2015 trip to Blue Heron Bridge and the Florida Keys are now added to the Florida gallery.

BAYLIFE magazine recently featured my work in their summer issue.

The article and print quality are both very nice!
