According to an interview with, prior to this previous winter Casteel was just a “starving artist,” but his photographs of dogs swimming underwater catapulted his career. “In 2009, the Southern California resident and film-school graduate quit his day job in creative advertising with Walt Disney Studios to pursue his dream—photographing pets both on land and underwater—full time,” reports.

Casteel came up with the idea to photograph dogs underwater during a routine photo shoot in California. He was with a small Cavalier King Charles dog and wanted to get some routine shots. With the dog splashing in the pool and chasing after it, Casteel’s idea was born.

The photographer reports being really excited about the release of his first book, “Underwater Dogs”, to be released October 23, 2012 through Little, Brown.
