Underwater Life by Craig Parry in Byron Bay, Australia

Growing up in Byron Bay, the ocean was a part of life. Every afternoon I would get home and go surfing and I have always had a love for the town’s inhabitants. When I was a child my mother would buy me disposable underwater cameras and I would spend hours photographing my friends surfing and capturing the fish around the surf break. After realizing my passion for capturing life under the water was growing, I decided to pursue it as a career and I haven’t looked back.
