Hello all!

 

My name is Emily Fraser. I work as an Underwater Photography Instructor and retail store assistant at Cathy Church's Photo Centre in Grand Cayman.

 

Before this job I built surf housings for Aquatech Imaging Solutions, and while studying at Brooks Institute I worked part-time in the Underwater department at Samy's Camera (fairfax location)

Hi guys !

I've been a professional photographer for 7 years, working mainly in the fashion and cosmetics industry, portrait and international press. Been working as a cinematographer as well on music videos, commercials, short fiction and cosmetics films.

Since 2018 I left all this madness behind to focus only on environmental, wildlife and landscape subjects in the hope to make people aware of the various ecological disasters happening around the globe.

I started diving during summer 2018 in order to get a new angle on my subjects and actually found myself a new passion.

 

 

Can't wait to read and learn new things surrounded by experienced people, and will do my best to share my knowledge with everyone as well !

Hello,

 

My name is Tim and I work in the industry. I am an equipment specialist at Reef Photo and Video. I look forward to being a member of Wetpixel. I primarily take photos underwater but I also dabble in video which I find increasingly fun and challenging.

 

I get to dive with all different cameras and housings as it is a part of my job and being up to date on what is "new and exciting."

Hi

I'm John from Destin, Fl and work as a freedive/spearfishing guide. I'm in the water year round with clients and I'm making the move from a gopro 6 into something a little more serious. I recently picked up a Sony a6300 and I'm saving for an underwater housing, to use with it. I love being in and under the water. I am fortunate to have a job which gets me wet daily and provides nourishment for my family while teaching others to provide for their families.

Hi,

 

I'm Jake from Boston, MA. I've been an avid drone photographer for years, and I've recently gotten into scuba diving and underwater photography. I've logged about 50 dives, most with a go pro, and I just purchased a SeaFrogs housing to taking my Sony A7 iii diving in Australia and Indonesia! I love diving and look for a chance to do it whenever possible in between college classes and internships.

Hey guys,

 

I'm Julia from Germany, but have been living in NYC for the past 4.5 years. I studied Photography at Parsons, work in fashion photography while in the city, and have been shooting underwater for 2.5 years now, mainly focussed on sharks and shark conservation. I've been diving for 11 years and finished my PADI divemaster certification in summer 2017 :)

I currently shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III in Nauticam Housing, although I'm planning to upgrade to a Mark IV soon!

Amanda Cotton. I believe after almost 15 years in the industry I should get more involved in the Wetpixel Forum family, so saying hello! :) I work as an Underwater Photographer and Expedition leader for A Cotton Photo and Big Animals Global Expeditions. A highlight of the work I do is sharing imagery and ocean/marine conservation knowledge through presentations at events, shows, expos and seminars around the world.

Hope to see many of you out in the blue!

Amanda

I'm on the "wet" coast, AKA Vancouver Island. Mostly dog photography, but enjoy surf, surf kayaking and kiteboarding pics as well. On the hunt for a Panasonic GX8 housing.

Hey everyone,

My name is Ramon and I have been diving for a number of years (around Malaysia and Indonesia for the most part). I have also always loved photography, so naturally I ended up combining the two interests. I currently shoot using an Olympus E-M1 with either the 60mm f/2.8 macro or the 8mm f/1.8 FE. Looking forward to learning more from everyone here!

Thanks,
Ramon

Hi

 

Im in South Australia and love diving and photography. Im a PADI MSDT. Just starting a new dive school here too...should be fun. Love liveaboards in the Solomons, Raja, PNG, anywhere in the coral triangle really. Been doing quite a few liveaboard photography workshops with Gerald Rambert lately on Siren Fleet, and really enjoying that. 2 Canons, 5D MKIV and 5DS, Nauticam housings, and enough luggage with that to make them smile when I check in...

Hi

 

I'm South African new to this forum. I started underwater photography a few years ago when I got my Canon SX240 digital camera with housing. Got a great deal but later discovered the reason. The shutter speed and aperture had to be adjusted with a dial but the housing only had buttons, so I had to guess what would be required for the dive pre-descent leaving only ISO to play with. Nevertheless I got some really nice pictures and loved underwater photography. I've been looking to upgrade for the past few years but havent been able to afford it until now. Looking to buy the Sony a6500 as it's compact for travel. Anyone with experience with this camera feel free to contact me with some tips/reviews

Hey folks, 

I guess I'm an industry member! I work for Adreno Spearfishing in Perth, Australia. I'm also an assistant freedive instructor (but will be a level one instructor within the next 6 months). I am currently studying marine biology but not actively doing any research at this stage in my career. However I am looking to work with sharks in south-western Australia - specifically migration and associated behavior. This could be a long way off, but I know what I want to do!

Good idea Eric!

 

For those who don't know me, I've been doing design and marketing for the dive and travel industry for almost ten years. I've published CD ROMs and helped to self-publish several books. I do many dive related web sites and a lot of Quicktime VR virtual tours as well as brochure and catalogue design, and trade show booth graphics. I also do underwater photography and sell my images as stock through my own web site and a few through Corbis Images. My clients include many live-aboards, magazines, dive resorts, dive operators, camera and equipment manufacturers, travel agents, photographers, as well as spin-off work from owners of other businesses who happen to know me through diving or referrals. I have also authored the online course "Digital Workflow for the Underwater Photographer" found on www.TheUnderwaterPhotographer.com (see our banner ads) and will be doing more digital workshops in 2006. Yes, I believe I have the best job in the world and I never lose appreciation for what I do! I also love to share my experiences with those enthusiastic to learn from my mistakes. ;)

 

If I have first-hand experience with something or someone mentioned here on Wetpixel, I may pop in now and then and I'll try not to be too biased! I get so much out of all the postings here and find this site to be one of the most valuable resources online for UW photo info and advice for everyone from beginner to pro.
