Trevor Rees

Trevor lives in Worcester and is a Commercial Services Advisor with Severn Trent Water Trevor lives in Worcester and has been diving for 29 years and currently uses a Nikon D80 and Sea and Sea housing and YS110 strobes.

As well as BSoUP, Trevor is a member of the Bristol Underwater Photography Group (BUPG) and the East Midlands Underwater Photographers (EMUP)To see more of his work please visit

All the images in Trevor's Open Portfolio are from green temperate water diving, mostly UK, cut out of original images and added to a black background. The subjects are adjusted to fit the available space and so achieve a pleasing arrangement of shape and colour. Hopefully something different to compete with all those overseas blue water sunbursts, sharks, turtles and mantas!
