Scuba Diver Articles

by Anne and Phil Medcalf

We regularly write about underwater photography for Scuba Diver magazine. Every few months we do a main article and then each month we contribute to their Shoot Like a Pro feature. Below are the links to everything we have produced so far. We’ll update this page each month as more of our stuff is published.

Underwater Etiquette. How good manners and better behaviour can help underwater photographers get on with one another and other divers

The Right Stuff. What to consider when buying a camera and housing for underwater photography

Background? Check! How thinking about the background can add a new dimension to your underwater images

Diving into Colour. the importance of colur in underwater photography and how to make the most of it in your pictures

Know your subject. Understanding marine life behaviour will help you get the images you want

We take a lot of images specifically for articles and blogs, so it’s a nice change to take pictures of things like this blenny rather than a diver with a camera setup.
