Ah...I will respectfully offer a counter view to your observation that photographers do not frequent the advanced sites. I know several accomplished photographers who frequent the advanced sites because they charter the best boats to take them there. Unlike hunters who like to cover a lot of ground looking for game, photographers often will spend all their time in one spot, because that is what it takes to build the shot.

I myself like to sightsee first, take photos second, and hunt third; my trip to Big Sur in June with Truth Aquatics covered all three.

As for your reference to drysuit divers, tech divers almost exclusively dive dry because of the depths they reach and how long they say down. Check out Becky Kagan Schott's work: https://photos.liquidproductions.com/

I've dove the wrecks in the Great Lakes wet, but most anyone who has the dry choice, chooses to dive the 39F water dry.
