Bruce Mozert (1916 – 2015)

By the age of 20, Bruce was already an accomplished photographer in N.Y. City. He went to Silver Springs in the autumn of 1938, and soon after arriving, he built his first underwater camera case. The underwater pictures he took were so clear that MGM took them to Hollywood, and they were picked up by magazines throughout the world. Soon, Mozert was as well known for his underwater photographs, as well as his sexy pin-ups and animal photos. He also worked as an underwater cameraman for NBC, ABC and CBS. His awards include two Lifetime Achievement awards, one from the Florida Photographers Workshop and the other from Silver Springs.
