In Remembrance of Stuart Westmorland, Photographer 1958 – 2016


“A Life That Touches Others Goes On Forever”

Stuart was not only an accomplished Photographer, but also an Artist. What set him apart was his ability to capture “life” in his images. Not only underwater but above. His photos made you feel if you were there, part of the scene.

Unfortunately Stuart passed way too early and will be missed by so many who were fortunate to have him in our lives. Stuart zest for life and the many ways he touched so many, will always be with us. Stuart will always be a comfort and inspiration in our lives. 

Stuart Westmorland was  recognized as one of the leading marine photographers in the United States. His marine mammal and natural history images appear in a variety of books, magazines, posters, calendars, brochures and aquarium displays. Magazine covers number over 200 and include: Time, Islands, Caribbean Travel & Life, Endless Vacation, Harrowsmith, Aqua, Wine Spectator, E The Environmental Magazine, Spa, Canadian Airlines, America West, & Alaska Airlines plus nearly every scuba diving magazine.
