Jackie's portfolio

The runner-up Jackie Campbell, from Ireland, learnt to dive in Australia in 1996. 'I was immediately hooked and fell completely in love with diving . I first brought a camera underwater when back in Australia 4 years ago on holiday and now I always have my camera with me when diving. I have never done a photography course, instead learning by trial and error and by exchanging tips with fellow photographers on holidays. I use Canon compact cameras with Inon ad mount lenses and mix natural light shots with those taken with a single inon d2000 strobe.'
