Photographed on a single breath at great depths. Intimate moments captured with animals in their natural habitat behaving freely not disturbed by surrounding boats or scuba bubbles. These were all taken in the wild, with me giving into fear in search of love and connection with animals. Having full trust in them to get so close to look them eye for an eye. All my images are emotional. Often taken balling my eyes out, trying to focus on their eyes. Lifechanging moments for me that truly expanded my heart wide open and have me wanting to inspire others to swim freely with out fear in the depths.
