Five-time Emmy award-winning underwater film producer and photographer Stan Waterman will be in St. George on Wednesday (Nov. 3) to exhibit a variety of his photographic works.
The event, sponsored by the Staten Island Sport Divers Club (SISD), is open to the public.
Among other noted accomplishments, Waterman was the underwater cinematographer for such films as “The Deep” and “Blue Water White Death.” The Discovery Channel produced and broadcast a two-hour biographical special about Waterman, “The Man Who Loves Sharks.”
Waterman will present his photos in honor of Captain Joe (Zero) Terzuoli, who died last year while diving the Northeast Atlantic from his boat, the John Jack. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Captain Zero Memorial Scholarship Fund. The fund provides free lessons to scuba students who would otherwise be unable to afford instruction.
“There is a great opportunity for Staten Islanders to meet a Hollywood icon and scuba diving legend in person, while helping the sport of scuba diving, ” said Steve Lombardo, president of the Staten Island Sport Divers Club and director of the Capt. Zero Memorial Scholarship Fund.
The gathering will take place at 7 p.m., in the Ruddy & Dean steakhouse, 44 Richmond Terr., St. George. Since seating is limited, reservations are suggested.
For additional information, or to reserve your place at the presentation, Lombardo may be reached at 718-702-8623.
