Featured Photographer | Morgan Riggs
Morgan Riggs is an ocean-loving Brit, only discovering the magic of the underwater world five years ago when he completed his Open Water course in Mexico. This was the moment diving became a big part of his life, it wasn’t long before he became a PADI instructor with hundreds of logged dives.
In those years he developed a real passion for photography, primarily so he could show friends and family exactly what they were missing out on beneath the surface. After upgrading from a GoPro to a premium compact camera, he taught himself and tried to practice as much as possible. Now he wants to show anyone and everyone why the ocean needs our help, and make people aware of all the amazing species that call the ocean their home.
A career as an electrician has almost turned into a part-time job as he tries to spend as much time travelling and diving as possible. These travels have allowed him to dive many different locations including the Galapagos, Cocos Island, Mozambique, Indonesia and many others. He is currently enjoying macro photography in North Sulawesi, Indonesia.
