When did you start shooting underwater photography?
Reaper CuttlefishCameleons of the ocean! These two reaper cuttlefish flicked through several colour changes right before our eyes!! Cuttlefish are visual communicators and have some of the most highly developed eyes on the planet. They can actually see polarised light and tones that are invisible to the naked human eye. This couple were hanging out off Bass Point, Shellharbour, NSW Australia.
I first got into photography in general in my late teens around the mid 1990’s. I had always had an attraction to the ocean from as far back as I can remember, so it was only natural that it would become my muse. But it wasn’t until around 2004 that I first started getting in the water with my camera.
I used to shoot surfers around the coast of the UK on my Nikon F80 in an Ikelite or Liquideye housing. Back then you only had 36 frames so you chose carefully what you shot! It was a long swim in to change film!
