My portfolio

by Trevor Rees

Two small macro subjects, two wide angle scenes, a fish and a seal make up this portfolio. I've aimed for bold colours with 6 simple and easy to understand images.  I was keen to avoid any sludgy brown colours or dull green water backgrounds so often characteristic of British diving.  Hopefully the images all sit comfortably together and so complement each other.

The images are shot mostly in 2008, all with a Nikon dSLR in a Sea and Sea housing

Thanks to my model, Paula Bailey who features in the cave/diver silhouette image.
