This is a unusual and very stunning over and under shot, with the sunset backing up the shark. The overall photo is excellent, right place right moment.
I am a passionate self-taught photographer and owner of Allen Walker Photography (Pty) Ltd. I am supported, inspired and motivated by my stunning wife Ronelle, who has taught me patience – something every photographer needs.
I got involved in Photography in 2007, specializing in UW photography, since then the company has broadened it’s scope to Wildlife, Sport and Landscapes. I am passionate about our South African wildlife heritage, both on the land and in the sea!
However with my passion comes a robust, hard but honest approach to photography and opinions. I believe that photography should be creative, fresh and inspiring.It is also extremely important to “give back”, so I endeavor to assist organizations dedicated to the conservation of the environment and where I can, I want my images to tell the story. I do not have a lot of financial wealth, but where I can contribute with my photographic ability to work for the greater cause, I will and do.
I am originally a web developer and programmer and specialize in Internet marketing.
In the past 20 years, I dived in many places: Red Sea, Mediterranean, Thailand, The Maldives, Florida, Bahamas, Turks and Caicos and others.. I was lucky enough to dive with all the latest equipment, that includes high end compacts, Mirrorless, DSLR's, almost every strobe in the market and many different lenses and accessories.
I helped and advised thousands of underwater photographers from beginners to the most professional.
