Charlie Elliot - I have always loved the water and been fascinated by the animals that lived there. I spent my childhood exploring rivers and oceans with a mask and snorkel and when I went to university, the first activity I signed up for was the scuba club.
I learnt to dive in a freezing quarry, in the North of England, in winter, and I loved it so much that I went on to instruct in subsequent winters. 18 years and hundreds of dives later I am still as hooked as I was that first weekend in murky English waters.
My great passion is showing people that diving doesn't have to be a 'holidays only' hobby. I got into photography as a way to showcase the incredible marine life I encounter and inspire others to appreciate, explore and protect the ocean.
