Hi, my name is Dana (pronounce Dar-nah) and I love creating magic underwater!
I started my photography journey some years ago when I saw that photography could actually create beautiful images, not just stop a moment in time (in a badly composed, terribly lit manner too!). A good friend of mine roped me (and I roped JP) into weddings, and it stuck! JP and I clicked as a team during weddings, so while it was flippin’ hard work, we enjoyed it!
After 7 years of weddings, I discovered the delight of underwater photography from watching the incredibly talented Ilse Moore doing a demo at a photographic expo. I was enamoured, transfixed, enlighted and amazed. I had to do this – I loved photography, had been a water baby my whole life, and knew this was worth trying. I Googled, drooled over pictures, and dreamed. I got my butt into gear and found a housing for my ancient camera, and after the first underwater shoot, I was hooked. That was March 2016, and the rest is history!
If I’m not glued to my camera, I’m either a mermaid in the pool, designing mermaidy things, listening to music, following the latest design trends, enjoying nature, soaking up some sunshine and baking.
