Underwater photographer Roisin Maddison will be gracing the Tech / UK Diving Stage at the GO Diving Show to discuss the challenges of shooting photographs in UK waters – and explain what you can do to get eye-catching images.
Roisin Maddison, an underwater enthusiast and an up-and-coming nature photographer, both above and below the surface, will be on the stage from 2.45pm-3.30pm on Sunday 5 March. Her love of nature stems from a childhood exploring and investigating the outside world.
After being given her first camera at the age of 13, Roisin became obsessed with photographing everything she saw – a passion that followed her into her teens, where she chose to take photography both at high school and college before deciding on it as a career, choosing to study Marine and Natural History Photography at Falmouth University.
Roisin was introduced to the underwater world in 2013 when she started her dive training. Since then she has progressed in both diving and underwater photography and is now a qualified dive instructor. She has used her photography to write for various magazines and to film for multiple production companies. Marine life has become incredibly important to Roisin, and she aims to use her photography to raise awareness of the smaller and lesser-known marine species.
