Marc Montocchio

Marc Montocchio’s love for fishing was passed down from his father, who bought him his first saltwater reel when he was 10. He would pick up his first underwater camera as a clearance diver for the South African navy. Today, when he’s not donning a mask and fins, he gives tours and chats with guests at his gallery and studio in Morehead City, North Carolina.
