Featured Photographer: Troy Mayne


Australia's award-winning underwater photographer Troy Mayne shares some of his stunning images


Troy Mayne has been photographing the underwater world for 20 years. Born in Bunbury, Western Australia, he grew up with the ocean and completed his Open Water dive qualification at 18, soon after joining the Australian Army.

Fascinated by the marine life he encountered on the Great Barrier Reef, Troy wished to record and share his amazing experiences and purchased his first underwater camera system. Six months after taking his first underwater pictures, he had his first article published in an international dive publication.

Since then, his passion for the oceans has taken him around the world and his images have won international photography awards and were published in books, magazines, calendars and advertisements worldwide.

Troy has worked across most sectors of the dive and tourism industry, including Trip Director/Marine Biologist on a cruise ship, reef guide, education and dive officer for the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, dive instructor, commercial diver and underwater photojournalist.

Currently, Troy resides in Australia and the Philippines diving, enjoying the best of both worlds.


His mission

Oceanic Imagery is dedicated to producing quality fine art images of the underwater world to inspire compassion to protect our oceans, and incite people to explore and experience the underwater world for themselves.
