About Us is owned by Julian "Kent" Jacobson and Pauline Walsh Jacobson of St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands. The company was founded by Kent and Pauline in 1992 to develop and market a photographic travel guide on CD ROM, "CDIslands® Presents The British Virgin Islands" (discontinued). The company has grown from marketing a single product offering to over 10,000 tropical island pictures available as digital stock photography for business and personal use, and for creating prints to decorate homes and offices. In addition, Pauline creates and markets ocean inspired handmade jewelry and fine art originals and prints, mostly watercolor paintings with tropical themes.

The majority of the photographs on the web site were taken by Pauline. Kent gets credit not only for his own underwater photos, but for the many times he has acted as the "spotter" on dives, finding subjects for Pauline to shoot.
