“I was very excited when I found the photo workshop. I learned different things, great things, from what I expected to learn. It was a great workshop and now I have a whole new equipment wish list.”  – Christy Quinlan – 2012 participant

Tanya Burnett has been a pioneering force in the dive industry since graduating with a major in Dive Business and minor in Photography in 1989. She had numerous “first in the industry” credits by the age of 25, but her real love has always been the marine life and photography. Afflicted with the travel bug early, she has been leading dive expeditions for photographers since the early 1990’s. As a professional photographer, her work has frequently appeared in dive and travel publications for the last 15 years. Her style reflects her talents in imaging: balancing action and space, revealing the geometry of a strong image, painting with light, recognizing vignettes that work and dealing with those that don’t. Ultimately you have to be able to “see” a great photograph in order to take it.

Stints as field Editor for Sport Diver, PADI Travel photographer, freelance photo assignment work and dive travel specialist have kept things busy for this Florida based artist. But when you really see Tanya in her element is underwater – helping people with strobes, pointing out subjects, suggesting changes and solving problems. Topside her enthusiasm and knowledge of marine life is infectious and liberally shared. “Underwater environments, light and a camera are powerful ingredients that if mixed with just the right balance of passion and restraint can create absolutely amazing alchemy,” says Tanya, “That’s what I try to inspire in fellow photographers at every workshop”.
