Underwater Photography.

16 Dec

Zena Hollowey born in Bahrain in 1973 and raised in London. At 18 she traveled the globe working as a SCUBA instructor and developed a passion for underwater photography and film. Completely self-taught Zena’s images are striking, instinctive and driven by a deep understanding of her medium. She delivers the remarkable combining the highly technical aspects of underwater photography with superb creative direction resulting in extraordinary magical imagery. She has taken underwater photography to entirely new depths. Zena’s renowned underwater photography appears regularly for publications such as How to Spend it, The Observer Magazine, 125, Tatler and Dazed & Confuzed. She has won many international awards and her commercial clients include: Nike, Umbro, Polydor, Sony, Epson, Herbal Essences and Jacuzzi. Technically, shooting underwater may be the biggest challenge a photographer can face. Not only is the environment diametrically opposed to the equipment required, but the water itself also can act as an aberrant lens and a cc filter all in one. Holloway has overcome these technical challenges by spending so much time underwater that working there is second nature.
