Sensational pics from underwater photographer Zena Holloway

zenaLondon-based Zena Holloway’s breathtaking underwater photography is inspired by her time in the water as a trained Scuba diver, instructor and guide.

She developed her interest for underwater photography when she was an 18yo traveling the world and teaching others to dive, and is completely self-taught, as she pushes the boundaries of both her imagination and the limits of her creativity.

Producing evocative images that show a deep understanding of her craft, her shots possess a powerful yet ethereal quality, combining a high technical knowledge with superb creative direction, and culminating in a successful career that has seen her work for some of the top magazines around the world.

I think the results speak for themselves – enjoy!
