I took a year off and then went right back to my beloved diving. After teaching for a bit longer, I decided I would like to try photography. My husband is a land photographer so it was an easy switch, get some underwater gear and I was ready to go. My husband got me all the necessary gear and I took off snapping photos. There were certain aspects of underwater photography that came easier. Some things have been more of a challenge. The more time I spend underwater with my gear , the less challenging those things become.
Most of my photography has been done in South Florida and Bonaire. South Florida offers a great diversity of photo opportunities and I am lucky to call it home.
