I am a PADI dive instructor but work mainly as a photographer for a company called Liquid Lense. (www.liquidlense.co.uk)
I mainly taught myself underwater photography, with a bit of help and advice from some friends, and have definitely found my passion in life! I've become a real addict and feel lost on a dive without my camera :)
For my job most of my time is spent photographing divers, but I always try to take a bit of time on each dive to get some nice shots of the marine life. Of course, if there is anything super special on the dive, then I usually focus on that!
I have dived in various places around the world, my favourites being Komodo where I saw my first Manta Rays, and Pulau Weh, which I love for all the weird and wonderful things to find off the beach.
Camera upgrade next year? Maybe. We'll see how the season goes……
