Do you ever have those friends who you feel have always been in your life even though you know that isn't true? That's how Ryan's friendship is to TFUI Founder Melissa -- she can scarcely remember a time he wasn't in her life. They became fast friends, bonding over their mutual love and respect for the ocean, and since then Melissa has greatly admired her friend's work (hint, hint, hubby). When TFUI decided to expand the Behind the Fins series, she knew Ryan Sobel was one of the artists she wanted to be a part of it. Not just because of how much she adores his work, but because his passion is infectious. Learn about Ryan and his breathtaking work with TFUI here...

There are some people you converse with on Twitter for so long that they seem like old friends-- and that's just the case with Chuck Bangley! Chatting with him for this interview felt like catching up with an old friend... and we hope that you feel that way by the end of this special post.
TFUI Founder Melissa C. Marquez is author of all animal bios and "Behind the Fins" segments.
