Five of the Best Underwater Photographers in AtEdge

Underwater photography is a dream for many professionals. It isn’t always easy, but it often results in some of the most breathtaking images you’ll ever see. The AtEdge community is full of incredible underwater photographers with unbelievable talent and style.

Take photographer David Martinez for example. He’s a globetrotting photographer with a passion for the surf and the sea. According to him, “he’s just as comfortable with a huge production crew as he is alone on his surfboard with his underwater camera.”

Then there’s photographer Christopher Wilson. A former writer, art director and designer, Wilson found his passion for photography after spending 15 years in the advertising world. His underwater portraits have a very distinct feel to them. The endlessness of the water surrounding his subjects creates something that feels both intimate and ominous.

Embry Rucker‘s passion for communicating the human narrative is clearly visible in his underwater photography.

The subjects of Hollis Bennett‘s underwater photography are a bit fishier than most, which makes sense for a man who grew up in Knoxville, loves the outdoors and has lived on three different coasts.

Lastly, we have one of the most talented underwater photographer’s around, Dana Neibert. There’s a lot more to his portfolio than just underwater photography, but don’t let that fool you. Some of his ocean shots are the most stunningly beautiful photos we’ve seen.

Sean Izzard x Christopher Walken

Sean Izzard, alongside WiTH Collective, met the undeniably cool Christopher Walken for Qantas Assure’s launch campaign.

Sean adds:

“I wanted to pair Walken’s extraordinary character with ordinary Australian scenery and shoot him in a manner befitting his coolness. It was certainly a career highlight to meet him.”

Kevin Arnold for The Nature Conservancy Magazine

Kevin Arnold recently traveled to the Brazilian Amazon to document the Sao Felix do Xingu region, an area that has suffered the highest rate of deforestation in the Amazon, for an article in The Nature Conservancy magazine.

Kevin says:

“It was fascinating to travel to this area for this shoot and be able to see first hand the efforts of The Nature Conservancy. The efforts of the Conservancy and the Brazilian government are slowly improving the statistics by encouraging new rules and tools to keep the land intact, while also still allowing the people of Sao Felix to make a living.”
