I’ve been fascinated with it from before I can remember. Apparently my father – in trying to impress my parents’ female friends with his knowledge of babies – gently submerged me as a new-born into our pool. I couldn’t get enough of it.
I became PADI certified in 2008, and bought a cheap point-and-shoot camera with my husband to show our friends and family the wonders of the Caribbean Sea. With time, I got better gear along the way – currently I’m in love with 4/3 mirrorless cameras.
I feel I’ve only just begun really getting into underwater imaging. I’m most certainly still learning, and will always do so. I remind myself most of all to witness the beauty around me, all the time.
With photographs, it all comes back to that one thing in the end: Water. It inspires me. If I can show the beauty of water, and the crucial importance of water, and all nature’s gifts in it, in any conceivable way, I’ll have a happy soul.
The journey continues.
