Image by Peter NicholasIn 2012, Peter will celebrate 40 years of diving, and almost the same in underwater photography. Peter started his love of underwater photography with a Kodak Instamatic in a perspex housing that used flash bulbs to expose the subject. He then progressed to a Nikonos 2 and Nikon F, F2 and finally F3 in an Aquatica housing. Today, Peter shoots with a Nikon D90 in an Aquatica housing. Together with his wife Margy, who is also hi…s underwater model, they spent five years traveling around Australia, writing numerous articles on the varied locations they dived and wrote their Top Ten sites which is still being used as a promotional tool in some locations. Peter’s favourite image is one that has taken some thought to produce, with a creative edge.

Peter has won several national and international awards for his photography, and along with Margy they have been published worldwide and worked alongside National Geographic, the Australian Institute of Marine Science and the WA Department of Conservation and Environment.

Peter Nicholas will share his knowledge on taking underwater images of models with tips for both models and photographers. These will include safety considerations such as working at depth, modeling underwater, directing your model, interaction with marine life, using both ambient and artificial light to illustrate the scene, differing elements to shooting people (not all about being underwater) and creativity.

This is an Underwater Festival 2011 special presentation by the WA Underwater Photographic Society and Perth Scuba.
