About David Schott

Emmy Award Winning Underwater Cameraman, Technical Diver & Explorer.

#

David Schott is a professional underwater Videographer, Stereographer, 3D Camera Operator and Technical diver. Diving since 1999 he has logged thousands of dives both open water and technical. He holds certifications in Trimix, Full Cave, Rescue, Ice diving and several Closed Circuit Rebreathers. Living and working in the Philadelphia area, he first became actively involved in Northeast wreck diving. He then earned his full cave certification and began diving cave systems in Florida and Mexico.

After numerous technical dives, Dave realized the need to switch to closed circuit rebreathers in order to extend bottom times for videography on deep and technical cave dives. Now with thousands of hours on theMegalodon Rebreather, he has the comfort, technical ability, and skills needed for deep dives in many challenging environments ranging from the shallows of the Caribbean to depths in excess of 400 feet off of New Jersey, as well as North and Central American Cave systems.

David has worked on many projects with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's (WHOI) Advanced Imaging and Visualization (AIVL) laboratory including NOAA's "Project Shiphunt" in Lake Huron and the 2011 Battle of the Atlantic Expedition documenting the historic wrecks in North Carolina. Dave has been diving and documenting many famous shipwrecks including the USS Monitor, the Andrea Doria and participated in the 2010 Titanic Expedition.

He is currently working as one of the primary underwater videographers documenting the exploration of the deepest cave in the United States at over 400 feet deep. He also worked as a stereographer for the first Discovery commissioned 3D program and many other 3D programs both in-air and underwater. He has experience shooting aerials from planes and airships, trekking through the swamp, and diving under 6ft of ice for the perfect shot. David has worked as a model, safety diver, underwater camera operator, stereographer, and topside videographer on documentaries and educational DVD's from the caves of Florida to the beaches of Hawaii.

Dave earned his Bachelor's degree in Economics/Public Policy at Lebanon Valley College. He completed his MBA at Widener University with a concentration in Finance and Marketing in 2004. Dave commits his time and availability to the management and projects of Liquid Productions.

David has won five Emmy Awards and an Edward R. Murrow for his work.

David is also a Fellow in the Explorers Club, a member of the Karst Underwater Research team, National Association for Cave Diving, as well as a member of The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
