Brandi started diving when she was fifteen, and has been a scuba instructor for over ten years. After watching the pros while working on liveaboard dive boats she was more than inspired to pick up her own dSLR and eventually became an onboard photo pro working in Hawaii, the Caribbean, and the South Pacific.
Inspired (and obsessed) by the ocean from an early age she received a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Tampa where she studied seagrass and a master’s degree from the University of Hawaii. Her travel and diving addiction has led her to over fifty countries. It’s a toss-up which she loves more: photographing the big animals and wrecks or treasure hunt in a candy store of places like Lembeh.
She is an award winning underwater photographer with numerous images and article published in magazines including Scuba Diver Australasia, Submerge, Wreck Diving, and Tanked Up. She also contributes regularly online to Dive Photo Guide, Dive Advisor, X-Ray Magazine, and she is the Ambassador of Ikelite.
