Our good friend Jim Catlin sent us a couple of cheeky snaps from the Cayman Islands yesterday. Jim has been a marine photographer for a decade. It started as a passion and has grown into a profession. Jim has lived and worked in the Carribean, Egypt and Asia for various marine conservation NGo's as well as an freelance underwater photographer for diving companies.
His underwater photographs from Tobago were used by Coral Cay Conservation to help promote marine awareness throughout the Caribbean and images from the Turks and Caicos Islands appeared in Caribbean Reef Magazine, including the cover shot for their first edition. Jim set up www.freeunderwaterimages.com, a website promoting marine awareneed and conservation though photography. Contributors upload images for users to download in their original quality, free of charge. This has become a great success with people from all over the world enjoying and using the images for everything from web design to art classes. Jim currently works at Cathy Church's underwater photo centre in the Cayman Islands as an underwater photography instructor. In the future he wants to do more surfing and water sport photography. Check out his website: Jim Catlin Underwater Photography. All images are available in print and canvas with shipping, quotes available. We are making space on the walls for some of his work.
