  • Conceptual Photographer Lucie Drlikova

    In episode twenty one, host Brett Stanley chats with underwater photographer Lucie Drlikova in the beautiful city of Prague, in the Czech Republic.

    Lucie’s work is a beautiful mix of fantasy, wonder, and perfectly executed concepts. She makes a lot of the set pieces, props, and outfits herself – and combined with her crisp clean post production her underwater images really come to life.

    They chat about her travels, finding her love for underwater photography, the celebrity and charity projects she’s been involved in, and a very cool technique for helping her clients relax in the water.

  • Art Nude & Lifestyle Photographer Damon Loble

    In episode fifteen, host Brett Stanley is discussing lifestyle and nude photography with LA based photographer Damon Loble. Damon has a wonderfully lo-fi style about his images, reminiscent of photos from the 70’s and 80s, and his work with scuba divers totally reminds me of the Hardy Boy’s book covers I used to see as a kid.

    Damon also works as a DIT on commercial photoshoots, a job that entails colour correcting files on the fly so the clients can approve the images – this gives him a huge head-start when it comes to grading his own photos.

    We chat about the beauty of the Miami sunrise, working with models in the cold open waters of southern California, and how to perfect the elusive under/over shot that he’s so well known for.

  • Activist, Artist, & Photographer Benjamin Von Wong

    In episode twelve, host Brett Stanley is talking to Activist, Artist, and Photographer Benjamin Von Wong. Ben’s work is probably best described as epic, ranging from his earlier photography work which had him collaborating with amazing subjects around the world, to his latest installation work building incredible sculptures and artworks from unusual objects that hope to provoke and motivate people to take action on issues like recycling, child hunger, and of course our oceans.

    Whilst not a full time underwater photographer, Ben has created some incredible imagery with very little experience, and his journey from playing in a pool with friends to tying models to shipwrecks is really inspiring.

  • Fantasy Fine Art Photographer Cheryl Walsh

    In episode ten, underwater portrait photographer Cheryl Walsh joins host Brett Stanley to discuss her beautiful fine art and how she uses large format inkjet printers to really bring her photographs to life.

  • Lifestyle and Surf Photographer Sarah Lee

    In episode seven, host Brett Stanley is speaking with Hawaiian born surf and lifestyle photographer Sarah Lee. They chat about her life on the water, how she found her love for surf photography, and what it's like to photograph pro surfer Lakey Peterson for the cover of ESPN's The Body Issue!

  • Bahamian Underwater Photographer & Freediver Andre Musgrove

    In episode four host Brett Stanley chats with underwater freedive photographer Andre Musgrove about his life growing up in the Bahamas, photographing marine life and models together, the joys of living on a sailboat, and the problem with the Bahamian postal system.

  • South African Underwater Portrait Photographer Ilse Moore

    Ilse Moore is an underwater portrait photographer based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Her work is dark and dramatic, with an amazing use of colour and lighting.

    In this episode, Brett chats to Ilse about working in her underwater studio, how she creates the images she's known for, and what drives her to keep exploring. They discuss the challenges of building your own equipment, working with clients vs experienced underwater models, and how hard it is to convert feet in to meters in your head (2m = 6.5ft, by the way).
