I'm Max from Holland, 21 years old.
I've been diving for over a year now and have been photographing underwater since the beginning.
I started with a SeaLife DC1400, but soon switched to a Nikon D5100 DSLR in an Ikelite housing.
Since i picked up diving i started to travel all around the world, from the Caribean to Asia, you name it if been there.. if not, I soon will be ; ).

Hi, my name is Scott. I've been diving since 2005. I just bought the Nauticam for the 7D after spending the last few years with a Cannon 20D. I haven't gottenthe new camera/housing in the water yet but I am itching. It's gotten wet, but only in the bathtub! Looking forward to all I can learn on WetPixel.

My name is Andreas, 46 from Germany however I would be OK when named Andy. I'm diving since 1998 and photographing underwater since around 5 years. I started off doing videos using a Sony Hd Cam (HDR500) in Mangrove housing. Travel weight restrictions however made me to change mind so now I'm mostly photographing using a Sony NEX-5N in Nauticam housing. I'm a vacation only diver so I do not have that many dives (don't like cold water - wimp I am). If interested I have placed some pictures onto smugmug for sharing.
Thanks to wetpixel for this great forum!

I'm a Director and Cinematographer from the Commercial / TV world. My wife is a Commercial Producer and Oceanographer and she introduced my to diving 3 years ago. I'm hooked. Our passions have been steadily aligning and we are looking forward to shooting many films underwater.

I've been diving about five years, thinking about doing my divemaster course in time for my 40th birthday next year. Also a novice dry land photographer, just starting to get into underwater images. Despite being from PA, I have done almost all of my diving in Aruba. So, if you have any questions about that island, let me know. I can probably direct you to just about anything you want on the island, or know who can.

I got my start in UW photography back in the early 70s by shooting UW. I won 14 medals in 2 years including a number of BofS and gold.
My first nice camera was a Rollimarine. It used flash bulbs UW.
I hope to hang out and pass on some knowledge.

Hi everyone. I'm Kat, from east Tennessee in the US.
I'm about halfway through a photography degree right now, and starting out into the professional portrait world. Been a certified diver for almost 5 years, but haven't been in the water for half of that. Hoping that will change once I'm done with school since minimum wage that I'm earning now just doesn't cover diving *and* photo equipment!
Once finances settle down, I'm hoping to get a housing for either my Nikon D40 or D7000 and be able to combine two of my loves. My favorite type of photography is nature and travel (hard to make money though) and I can see enjoying UW photos just as much as the photos I take on my weekly hikes in the Smoky Mountains.
I recently applied for a job as a diver/education presenter at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies. Cross your fingers for me!

Hi I'm Rick from SoCal. Long time diver of nearly 20 years (including technical and cave diving certifications). I occasionally dabble in UW imagery. Lately I've been having fun experimenting with UW video using a GoPro Hero HD2.

Hey, Helen here from California. I've been diving for 20 odd years, but recently picked up a camera (3 years ago) and have been taken by the bug. I'm currently using a Panasonic point and shoot, but am considering an upgrade, but just have no idea where to begin! LOL.

Hello fellow UW Photographers;
My name Shawn Girard and diver up here in Canada. I enjoy combining my two passions that I love, diving and photography. I am here at this site to learn more about underwater photography.

I'm a 33 year-old relative diving newbie (been certified for several years, but haven't dived a huge amount), enthusiast (topside) photographer, and made the 'fatal error' of borrowing a cheap and cheerful older A-series Canon for some snorkeling in Bonaire last week, and I think I'm hooked. Sadly no scuba due to recent (emergency) surgery, but that and the older tech didn't stop me from capturing some great underwater moments! Still pondering which system gets the underwater gear, will be posting to the forum to gather some opinions on the topic!

I have been diving for 40 years and have been taking photos for 30.

HI folks I've been diving for a couple years now, and have been an extremely avid amateur photographer for a few more years than that. I just recently got the housing for my camera and have been looking for a dedicated underwater photographers forum to hang out and get to know others of like mind.
I Currently live in Canada, but plan on moving to the Philippines fairly soon, where I intend to do a lot more diving and pursuing photography under the waves as well.
I don't really have any questions relating to underwater photography, I'm enough photographer I think to work out my own solutions, but if there is anything anyone thinks I would do well to know before starting I would surly appreciate anyone telling me ;D
I look forward to getting to know some of you soon!
