Need a photo of a blue banded gobie or an albatross named Makana? Monterey Bay Aquarium staff photographer, Randy Wilder, can take care of it for you. After 20 years of photography at the aquarium, he has stories to tell about photographing behind the scenes.

Wilder was born in San Francisco in 1953, and grew up in the San Joaquin Valley. He has lived in the Monterey area most of his adult life. In 1969 he learned to dive. Randy started volunteering at the aquarium about 6 months after it opened in 1984. In the autumn of 1985, Wilder was hired as their first Diving Safety Officer; he ran the dive program for 10 years. He then transitioned to the position of photographer. Shortly after, National Geographic published a feature article on the Monterey Bay Aquarium titled, "Window on the Bay". Wilder worked with their photographer, Jonathan Blair on that project. It became his big break into the world of professional photography.
