One of the best ways to learn photography is to see other photographers’ work. We try to find some of the best underwater photographers in the world, and showcase their work, along with the gear they use, to help other aspiring photographers improve, learn new skills and get inspired.
This week we will feature the talented Grant Thomas!
Originally from Scotland, I have always had a fascination with the natural world and in particular the ocean. After finishing a degree in Engineering I took the opportunity to travel. This was the best decision I have ever made, as it was traveling that really developed my passion for photography. Soon after leaving Scotland I began working as a PADI Dive instructor and purchased my first underwater housing from Ikelite. Photography was no longer just a part of my life, it had become my life. I now work as a freelance photographer and expedition guide, leading a variety of tours and workshops to encounter and photograph animals such as humpback whales and orca.
