Underwater Photography

Jul/Aug 2010


50 years ago underwater photography was something of a dark art practised by a handful of pioneers. Fast forward to today and thankfully things have changed. Now you can capture your adventures in vivid colour with a compact and easy to use outfit that won’t cost you a kidney. Where can I get such a wonder? CamerasUnderwater of course, we’ll even show you how to get the best out of it.

They are an opportunity to see how the standard of your shots compares and there is always the possibility of winning a prize of either equipment, travel or cash. Indeed some of the more hotly contested competitions only have cash prizes and there is a small bandof European photographers who make a tidy living entering and winning such events.

The competition in question has been running for 4 years and each year there are grumbles from the underwater photography community but this year, initiated by Jason Heller of DivePhotoGuide,effectively to highlight unethical corporations. a written dialogue has been taking place between My impression is that his mind is made up Jed Livingstone of NAUI and the responses to and he is perfectly entitled to take that attitude but our complaints about the rules were robust and he should be aware that the ability to communicate unrepentant and left us in no doubt that there was no is verydifferent nowadays and even a very well way the rules were going to be changed. established corporate identity can be adversely The responses were quite disparaging about affected by the mass disclosure of unethical underwater photographers who cared about the practices. image rights of those who might unwittingly enter My final concern is for the companies who this unethical competition. have been...
