World Champion 2004 - Andrew Woodburn

Andrew Woodburn is a relative newcomer to underwater photography. He has been taking pictures topside since his schooldays but only moved under water in 2000.

Living in South Africa Andrew has subject rich waters on his doorstep and most, but not all, of his shots capture the marine diversity of the area.

He had his first success with us in 2002 with a well deserved Bronze medal for this shot.

In 2003 he entered a very consistent level of image with a wide variety of subjects. It was a close call with other notable photographers fielding strong portfolios; Rick Tegler and Bob Whorton (to name but two) were all in contention.

However, we are sure you will agree, Andrews’ dominance with three gold, one silver, and two bronze medals placed him at the head of the pack.

In addition to the medal winning images, Andrew entered these highly commended shots.

You can see more of his work on his website website

Andrew has been published in titles such as Divestyle, Travel Africa, Food and Home and SHAPE womens magazine as well as winning international and local awards.
