I’ve watched them move the way they interact play express emotion. Before I came to the moment I know what I wanted, Silky smoothness of fur the humanistic expression in there eyes but above all the bridge between air and water the trail that connects them to the surface. A small moment in the underwater world were they feel understood something I can take with me in an image. Now you have my insight into this image hopefully you can feel the bridge that connects us to the surface when you are underneath.

Hi. I’m looking for the perfect balance of light and composition. Those small moments in life where we feel perfectly connected to nature. Whether it be in a single breath dive, the morning light bouncing off the oceans surface or the darkness that comes before the moon. There is so much beauty that it’s hard to look past. Endlessly searching for those moments of natural interactions, I’m drawn to them. Not only to capture but to experience them.
