Anyone who produces awesome images through raw talent and not just, seemingly, never ending funds, gear and non stop trips...

Dean


I completely agree Dean, Aside from your definition though, I'd like to add that those who have contributed to the underwater photography is also among them, like Eric Cheng himself and his work has contributed a lot to the underwater photography world. There are many more people who are less known but their work, efforts, talent and techniques has contributed tremendously to underwater photography.

If i might be so bold and add my favourite, because for me this thread is about sharing a preference and so for that reason I would like to advocate Anita Sherwood

http://www.britishsh...o.uk/anita.html

To wrongly paraphrase Morrisey, she says the most to me about my life. She has a real skill in just showing off the critters that I see and that mean the most to me with a simple, unprepossessing touch that shows them in their environment just doing the things they do. She has the same affection for the bugs that I do so that sometimes it feels like she is taking her photos from within my mask and for that single unassuming talent I hold her work up there with the greatest of respect.


I couldn't find a set of images or gallery of her work though. Looks like she's done a nice book. Thanks for sharing.

Mine is a bit different and left field. My top photographers are the guys I dive with every weekend in conditions that most people would walk away from. We don't have boats so we all shore dive here in Perth and if we are lucky on a good day the vis is 5m but usually around the 3m and very silty. We all support each other and suprisingly in the conditions we dive we get some very good photos and they are always there to give advice and a hand when required.

Thanks,
Ali

What about
  • Cathy Church
  • Curt Bowen
I guess they too have contributed a lot to underwater photography.
