Chen Dexian fascinated with the natural world at a young age, Dex was a keen follower of David Attenborough’s documentaries and decided on picking up Scuba Diving after serving his National Service in Singapore in 2007. Since then, Dex has embarked on a journey to become a Marine Biologist and graduated from the National University of Singapore in 2010. His experience as a trained Marine Biologist exposed him to a variety of marine habitats and provided him the opportunity to observe and understand marine life behavior.
In his spare time, Dex also travels around to photograph and share the beauty of the underwater world. By applying the knowledge he has acquired as a Marine Biologist, his photos have won him placings in underwater photography competitions and were also published in articles magazines like ScubaDiver AustralAsia and Asian Diver. Recently, he has also started to provide workshops in photography, marine life behaviour and reef restoration to share his passion and create awareness for marine conservation.
Dex hopes that through his images, he can ultimately communicate the wonders of the ocean and encourage various stakeholders to cultivate long-term concern for and preservation of the rich and amazing marine systems.
