Each year, tens of thousands of Australian Giant Cuttlefish (Sepia apama) aggregate in the shallow waters near Point Lowly, Whyalla. Hovering in the water they put on a dramatic show by flashing different colours and patterns, and changing their shape by flaring their arms to either defend off other males, or to attract a female partner.
LOUISE'S UNDERWATER JOURNEY
I have always had a passion for photography and growing up I almost always had a camera in my hand. My love for underwater photography really started to develop after completing my Bachelor of Science and Open Water dive course. Armed with scuba skills, a deep scientific understanding of marine ecosystems, and my interests in photography, I was finally ready to start capturing the diverse and unique inhabitants of our oceans. My favourite subjects are cephalopods - I am mesmerised by their extraordinary intelligence and inquisitive nature! Through my photography, I aim to showcase the incredible marine ecosystems that surround Australia's coastlines and hope that my images both inspire people to jump in the ocean, and to take steps to protect it.
