April's underwater magic

My favourite way to recharge is to head under the sea here on the Ningaloo Reef for some scuba diving. I always take my camera with me and there is always so much amazing scenery and beautiful marine life to photograph. I find that being able to do something completely different with photography helps me be more creative during my portrait and wedding sessions, too. I play with patterns, light and composition while trying to capture the "personality" of each creature and the essence of each scene.

Here are some recent images:
