January 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Cal Kothrade – What Lies Beneath. Photographing Shipwrecks.
Find out what it takes to dive down 175 feet into icy cold waters, and bring back award-winning shots of historic shipwrecks. Cal, an internationally renowned underwater photographer, specializing in the deep, dark and cold wrecks of North America’s Great Lakes will discuss the dive equipment, training, camera gear, and skill sets required to image these eerily beautiful wrecks. He is a board trustee of the Wisconsin Marine Historical Society and a member of the Wisconsin Underwater Archaeological Society.
Watch as Cal Kothrade dives 60ft of Lake Michigan water to record the brig Mahoning. This sailing vessel carried grain in the eastern Great Lakes. She was sold in 1857 and hauled lumber between Milwaukee and Chicago. She was capsized and sank in 1963 near Port Washington, WI.
