I recently joined a webinar of Mission Blue about the role of photography in ocean conservation. I was quite inspired by all the speakers, still believing a photo can have impact. I came about the webinar because of Christian Vizl, a photographer I greatly admire. Other photographers I got to know and had great things to say were Amos Nachaum, Joakim Odelberg, Tanya Houppermans, Alex Rose and Pier Nirandara. 

The activist in me is stirred and I feel ignited to make an impact! 

These are images from Costa Rica, Playa del Coco. Dive sites are Catalinas and Bat Islands. The camera is a Sony RX100 with brand underwater housing. In the editing process I welcomed Topaz DeNoise AI to do some heavy lifting. 

Can you spot the murray eel?
