I am Reed Nescher and I founded TWO TANKED PRODUCTIONS to provide a service to the Dive and Entertainment industry with good quality Video and Photography of the underwater world that I have been a part of for over 35 years not counting the endless hours setting on top of a surfboard watching the sea under me and feeling a part of natures greatest wonder the Ocean and all that it hides and holds.
I have grown up around Boats, Fishing, Surfing, the beauty of the Sea, and since 1972 the underwater portion of our world. As Two Tanked Productions I have traveled the world and meet many interesting people and have had equally exciting adventures from the Jungles of Central America, the White Sand Beaches of the Bahamas, and the Ocean that still calls to me to bring back pictures of her beauty and record the adventure for so many.
