Underwater Photographer Brett Stanley has been working with water for over 10 years, and is still finding creative ways to create images that have a life of their own.
Brett loves being under the water and adding photography to that is just a bonus. His natural calm nature in the water really shows through and helps his clients to feel comfortable, which is the first aim of any underwater shoot.
Whilst based in Los Angeles, USA, the Australian born photographer travels frequently and relishes the chance to work with new people and new locations all over the world.
Always looking to innovate, Brett has built custom equipment and perfected his techniques to make every photoshoot the best it can be
Brett’s work has been published worldwide and his landmark series Underwater Pole Dance garnered massive attention internationally and was featured in magazines, newspapers, and on TV with Cosmopolitan, Brigitte (Germany), ABC News (USA), Yahoo (Australia), and Telemundo (Mexico) to name a few. He’s also been interviewed by German newspaper Sueddeutsche and photography magazines F11 (New Zealand) and Fotoflock (India).
Brett was originally intrigued by the Outex concept because it enables him to significantly increase his teaching audience by orders of magnitude. While teaching and lecturing about underwater photography, his audience is often limited by the complexity and costs associated with dedicated housings, lights, weight, location-scountig, and other gear. "Outex grows the market for underwater portraiture, maintains my imaging performance, and facilitates my setup in the process."
