As I look back at 2015 it will be defined as the year I spent in the water. Having ponied up for a professional grade camera housing for my DSLR it opened up the possibilities of what had been fun experiments to full-fledged commercial shoots.
This summer was epic. Thanks to global warming and El Niño we had an amazing summer with 70° water temps for five months. This shoot with Courtney was my last ocean shoot for the season.
Last week I sat down for my first professional portfolio review. Up to this point I’ve only had a couple of photography consultants review and edit my work.
I recently bought an Aquatech underwater housing for my 5D Mark III. I spent a lot of time researching the system but what I couldn’t find in my research was practical advice on what would be the best camera settings before I locked it away in the housing.
Throughout the years I have learned that I can’t be the best photographer in everyone’s eyes. My job as a photographer is to listen to your needs and deliver images that satisfy those needs.
