ABOUT THE SPEAKERS:
Adriana Basques is a former IBM executive turned professional underwater photographer whose imagery is gaining significant notoriety around the world.
Born in Brazil, Adriana was hooked on scuba diving during her first experience back in 1996 in the Caribbean.
She finally combined her love for the underwater world with photography in 2008, when after purchasing her first DSRL camera.
Her engineering background combined with a unique innovative artistic flare has propelled her into becoming a highly recognized international professional in both photography and post production.
In 2010, she took a sabbatical from IBM and moved to California, focusing her interest on photography and diving. Three years later, the corporate life had lost its appeal, and she began to focus her full time effort as a Nature and Wildlife photographer.
Her images denote a distinctive style that have become the hallmark to her creativity.
Adriana has been published in numerous magazines, calendars and books around the world, receiving awards for her work.
Adriana also co-leads exclusive trips with her husband Clark Miller, to remote and exotic locations around the world.
