Colin Gans

Colin has been passionate about the ocean since early childhood. In 2001 he started shooting underwater and his efforts were rewarded by winning a gold medal in an international underwater photo competition with one of first underwater images.

These days he spends little time diving for food and more time underwater behind a lens capturing marine life in images. He hopes to instill in people a greater awareness for the importance and fragility of our oceans by providing a moment's escape and respite from busy life. Travels have taken him around the world to many unusual locations.

In recent times he has also embraced the integrated technologies of model avionics to complement his underwater work with small multicopters to carry cameras into the air for aerial perspectives.
