Alex Mustard Underwater
There's a very good new article at Rob Galbraith's site about using the Nikon D2X digital SLR underwater. Here, clipped from the middle of the article, is a bit about the photographer:
"Born and raised in the United Kingdom, Mustard, now 30, began taking pictures underwater before he was in his teens, hoping to show his family, who were mostly indifferent to the sea, the amazingly cool stuff he was discovering in the water. He even tried to take a camera on his scuba certification dive, which he made when he was fourteen, but this plan was rejected as a bit presumptuous.
"In his early twenties, while still in college studying marine biology, Mustard began publishing images, and his work has now appeared in more than 30 magazines and newspapers around the world. His stock photography is marketed by a U.K. agency called Oceans Image Pictures. He shot much of the wildlife section of a 2004 book on camouflage called DPM: Disruptive Pattern Material. And in February 2006, Ultimate Sports Publications will publish Mustard's first solo photo book, The Art of Diving, a celebration of the activity of diving with text by author Nick Hanna. Mustard also frequently gives lectures and teaches field seminars on digital underwater photography."
Don't miss the article.
