Sam, whose parents have long worked in the dive industry, became a certified diver on his tenth birthday. On his first year of diving he worked on buoyancy and read up on animal behaviour. A year later, his parents taught him to take underwater photos. Sam loves showing people the beauty of the underwater world and in doing so hopes to raise awareness and save its fragile ecosystem.
