The biggest summer fund-raisers for the Montauk Playhouse Community Center start tonight with a show at the Playhouse by Break8, a group of roller-skating breakdancers who have performed on “America’s Got Talent.”
Stephanie Whiston of Montauk has dived in deep seas over 1,000 times in the last 20 years. And all because of her little fear of sharks!
A friend suggested she combat that fear by diving with the often-maligned creatures. She now photographs them and other underwater species, and it has become her life’s work.
On one of her first dives, in 1993 aboard a National Geographic Society vessel, a crew member lent her a camera, and she ended up winning first place in a photography contest sponsored by the society.
