Robert F. Myers was born in Leesburg, VA in 1953. As the son of a Department of Defense linguist, he spent most of his childhood overseas where he developed an intense interest in the terrestrial and aquatic animals of each post. His first two years of high school were spent in Hong Kong, living a few blocks from the beach at Repulse Bay where he took up skin diving and kept his first marine aquarium. After college, he transfered to the University of Hawaii in order to study coral reef fishes in their own environment. While there, he took up underwater photography, becoming actively involved in local dive clubs. He graduated in 1975 with a BA in zoology. As an undergraduate, he surveyed populations of fishes around Oahu, collected moray eels and sharks at Johnston Atoll, and assisted in the collection of potentially toxic fishes at Enewetak Atoll. In l977 he moved to Guam to pursue graduate studies at the University of Guam Marine Laboratory. There he divided his time between studies, underwater photography, and employment before earning an MS in biology in 1984. In 1981 he founded Coral Graphics and from 1982 to 1995 he worked as a fisheries biologist for the Government of Guam. He retired on 1995 to pursue photography, writing, research, and consulting.
