Underwater photographer Brett Lobwein takes to the GO Diving Show ANZ Photo Stage


Brett Lobwein

Award-winning underwater photographer Brett Lobwein will be showcasing his wonderful imagery on the Photo Stage at the inaugural GO Diving Show ANZ in September.

Brett is a passionate and environmentally-minded photographer based in Sydney, who having grown up on the waterways of the Port Hacking River in the southern suburbs of the city, saw his love of scuba diving really taking shape in the early 2000s while working in a local dive shop.

By 2010, he had started to take a keen interest in underwater photography and purchased his first DSLR housing. From his first trip to swim with the humpback whales in Tonga, he was completely hooked.

His passion for photography is rivaled only by his wanderlust for exotic travel. Whether shooting silky sharks in Cuba’s Gardens of the Queen, penguins in Antarctica, polar bears in the Arctic, orcas in Norway or seals in Narooma, Brett is always sure to represent marine life in their natural element, without demonising or sensationalising an animal to gain attention to an image for the wrong reasons.

Aligned with his love for the ocean and its inhabitants, Brett is also a strong advocate of protecting our oceans and environment by raising awareness around excessive use and demand for single-use plastics.

Brett is a proud Sony Digital Imaging Advocate, Ambassador for Isotta Underwater Housings, Member of the Explorers Club, Member of the Ocean Artist Society, and former associate/resident photographer at Ocean Geographic. Brett also is the owner of UW Images, a distributor of underwater photography equipment.

His images have won numerous international photography awards and have been published worldwide.

The GO Diving Show ANZ

This annual event, taking place this year on 28-29 September at the Sydney Showground at the Olympic Park, is aimed at showcasing the very best of our underwater world to everyone from raw novices who are either contemplating getting into diving, or have completed their entry-level courses, to advanced divers, right through to technical divers and veteran CCR divers.

There are an array of stages – the Main Stage, the Photo Stage, the Australia/New Zealand Stage, the Inspiration Stage and the Tech Stage – that will play host to dozens of speakers from around the world, as well as a host of interactive features to suit young and old, from VR diving experiences, trydives, a demonstration pool, Bruce the rodeo shark, mermaids, and much more.

Surrounding the stages and features will be a broad range of exhibitors, from tourist boards and tour operators to resorts, liveaboards, training agencies, retailers, manufacturers, and conservation organisations.

The 2024 GO Diving Show UK, now in its fifth year, attracted more than 10,000 attendees over the weekend, and spanned an area of 10,000 sq m of exhibition space, and the Australia and New Zealand variant aspires to reaching this level in coming years.
