Featured Photographer | Romina Bayer 

Copy of Featured Photographer 6



Romina is a passionate underwater photographer and underwater photo coach. She started diving in Mexico, for the simple reason that it was raining. After a rough start, she quickly became addicted to the underwater world and embarked on a journey to become a professional diver.

Romina has lived in Indonesia, where she taught scuba diving and managed a diving center on a remote island in North Sulawesi. The unique combination of weird critters and stunning walls in the Bunaken Marine Park have given her the opportunity to advance both her macro and wide-angle photography skills. Lately, she has been hooked on shooting with a snoot.

With her underwater photography she wants to share the beauty of our oceans and spark the viewer's curiosity to learn more about them. She wants to inspire others to improve their underwater photo skills and use their images to raise awareness for this fragile ecosystem that we all depend on. On her website www.oceansnaps.com you can find lots of tips on how to take your own underwater photography to the next level.
