I love photography!

With a photographer as a father, I’ve always enjoyed this medium of art. Underwater photography is fascinating to me because I remember when cameras only used film. I’ve learned about so many photographers and models through this podcast.

Thank you Brett!

I just needed to give you a shout out to say, Thank you for creating this podcast to inspire fellow underwater photographers and models! I’ve been shooting underwater portraits myself for 8 years and am excited to hear everyone’s stories. I can relate on so many levels and feel a little lonely as an underwater photographer here in Philadelphia, PA, since I’m the only one here shooting underwater, (as far as I know). I look forward to connecting with you and others on Facebook. I’m also a big fan of yours Brett! You Rock and keep up the awesome work! -Julia Lehman
