Brooke Lori Pyke accidentally got into diving when on holiday in Thailand in 2011 after graduating from design college she did an open water course. She was hooked right away. Putting her design career on hold, she decided to undergo dive master training, and started to follow her dreams to become a dive professional. Brooke worked around South-east Asia and Australia for a couple of years. In 2014 that she used a camera for the first time underwater and loved it from the get-go. Not long after she invested in her first compact camera, a Canon G12. Since then she has become a dive instructor and a self-taught underwater photographer. Gradually growing her camera set-up piece by piece, adding video lights, wet lenses and strobes. Today Brooke shoots with a humble Olympus TG5 but soon she hopes to upgrade to full-frame DSLR camera. 

Brooke lives on Nusa Lembongan near Bali and works full time as a dive instructor. Photography is one of her biggest passions and it's what she spends most of her time doing outside of teaching.
