Image 1 bio shot copyBased in Melbourne Australia and dive qualified only 2 years ago, Anita and Peter (Aka Neat and Pete) caught the underwater photography bug very quickly, investing in a camera and lighting set up soon after completing their PADI qualifications. Since then their stories and photographs have been published in diving magazines and they’ve visited some of the worlds best dive locations including Raja Ampat, Alor, Bunaken and Halmahera in Indonesia, the Maldives North and South Ari Atolls and Tiger Shark diving in Fiji’s famous Beqa Lagoon.

Aquaholics and mountain addicts, when they’re not working as consultants in tourism marketing and destination planning they travel and produce content for their blog   https://www.summitstoseas.com/ focusing on high altitude trekking and scuba diving. They have a passion for both macro and wide-angle photography and favour Olympus cameras and Sea and Sea strobes.
