Hi, my name is Tony and I am a new member to Wetpixel.  I have been diving off and on for approximately twenty-five years and came back to the sport several years ago when I became interested in underwater photography.  I have always been into travel photography and this seemed like a perfect marriage of two long-time interests.  I started with a Canon G-12 compact camera and gear, which took excellent underwater images, and six months ago "graduated" to a DSLR set-up, which has been somewhat challenging to not only become proficient with, but to carry it onto an airplane!  (Any suggestions for getting a 35 pound camera/lenses/housing bag into the cabin would be much appreciated.)

I hope to utilize the expertise of the site members as well as its other resources to produce some nice images.

Hi, I'm a Canadian/American photographer who just got into underwater photography this year. I shoot with a Sony a7 with a 90mm macro and a 28mm wide angle in my Ikelite housing.

Hello all

 

I'm Mike from the North West of England. Been diving for many years with my son. Just finished a 7 day (out of 14 - gotta keep the wife happy) dive trip to Cyprus were I have been using my new Canon G7x Mk2, Fantasea housing and Fantasea UWL-09A ultra wide (weitwinkel) Angle lens. This is a massive step up for me and I'm very happy with the results so far. Hope to learn from you all and help improve my technique.

 

Here are some of my favourites from this dive trip

Hi 

 

I am Nayan from Bangladesh. I am very much interested about underwater photography, but I don't have enough knowledge on that particular topic. Whatever I have, I want to share and more importantly, I want to know about all others.

Hi there,

I'm Corey. I'm a PADI dive instructor who has a passion for u/w photography. I currently have a compact setup (RX100 II) and I recently got a Nikon d500. Still need a housing and am toying with the idea of getting one second hand..?

So I'll be checking back regularly for gear chats!

Cheers,
Corey

Hi there :)

 

I'm from Sweden, but do most of my diving in tropical waters while travelling. Not a huge fan of the cold and dark theme we have going here at home :)

 

I've been doing photography on dry land since forever, and underwater since about 2010 or so.

 

Looking forward to being a part of the forums!

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm Sandy from the US (but a permanent resident of South Africa after marrying my South African husband).  I joined the forum at the suggestion of an underwater photographer here in South Africa because I want to sell some of my underwater photography gear.  But I saw the section on help with improving our underwater photography, so now I'm psyched to delve into that!  Look forward to learning from you guys and enjoying your photos/stories/recommendations/hints.

 

Cheers, Sandy
