Underwater photographer Alex Dawson. 

Alex specializes in underwater wrecks and cave diving, capturing moments we rarely see ourselves.

“I find a lot of inspiration in nature photography, but I also like to try new things that have never been shot before, and that takes a lot of thinking and planning before I can try it underwater.”

Alex currently shoots with the Z 7II and has found the switch from the D850 very easy.

“I feel like the Z 7II is extremely similar to the Nikon D850 I’ve used for the past 3.5 years and it’s at least equally good or better since it’s much better at video.”

Here are his top three shooting tips you may find useful:

Know your environment and conditions well.

Make sure you use the right gear especially shooing in low light environments.

Put a lot of energy in developing your RAW development skills so you can take the full advantage in post processing of what these cameras can capture.
