USING PHOTOGRAPHY TO HELP CHILDREN
Bruce Yates lives near Seattle, Washington. As a founding partner of Viridian Advisors (previously Appropriate Balance), he has spent nearly four decades as a financial/wealth advisor and manager by trade, but his passion for the underwater realm is reflected in the images on this website.
Bruce is not a full-time/professional photographer, but considers himself a “serious amateur.” Since people like to buy prints of his work, they are available for purchase here (transactions securely handled by Smugmug). All profits from purchases - whether on this website or in exhibits - are donated to the Int'l Children's Surgical Foundation. ICSF is a wonderful organization that literally changes the lives of children born with facial deformities in lesser-developed countries of the world (just the sort of countries scuba divers cherish for their pristine reefs).
