Hi, I'm Louis!


As a photographer, I have always been drawn to the beauty of the world and the endless possibilities for artistic expression that it offers. My passion for photography has taken me on many adventures, from diving into the depths of the ocean to exploring the far reaches of the globe.

I specialize in underwater, travel, and commercial photography, and have been fortunate enough to work in these fields for over 10 years. As an underwater photographer, I am constantly awed by the stunning and diverse marine life that can be found beneath the waves. It is my hope that through my images, I can showcase the beauty and fragility of this underwater world and inspire others to protect it.

In addition to my work underwater, I also love to travel and capture the unique and breathtaking landscapes, cultures, and people that I encounter on my journeys. From the stunning pagodas of Myanmar to the otherworldly landscapes of Iceland and the colorful deserts of Bolivia, I am always on the lookout for new and exciting subjects to photograph.

As a commercial photographer, I have the opportunity to work with a range of clients, helping to tell their stories and promote their brands through my images.

At the end of the day, my love of photography drives me to constantly seek out new opportunities to capture and share the beauty of the world. Whether I am working on personal projects or commercial assignments, I am grateful for the chance to do what I love every day.
