About Lucy: I learnt to scuba dive in 1986 and since then l have had the pleasure of diving these incredible places: Cuba, many Caribbean Islands, Galapagos Islands, Cocos Island, French Polynesia, Rangiroa, Tonga and Fiji Islands, Solomon Islands, Truk Lagoon and Palau, Indonesia, Thailand, Andaman Islands, Maldives, Chagos Archipelago, Cozumel, Cenotes Mexico and the Red Sea.
Underwater photography has been my passion since my first dive, that and my love of marine life. During a six year voyage around the world l encountered amazing sea life and formed unforgettable memories. On a Fijian island we met a tribal chief to ask his permission to dive on his reefs and the islanders of Ifalik who allowed me to sit on their sacred ground where no females are allowed and so on. A very lucky special time.
My enthusiasm for helping people improve their photographs and strike rates, was the reason for developing the Barbados Underwater Photo Academy. I offer INON UK level 1 U/W photography courses for compact digital cameras throughout the year. Details for this can be found on scubachannels
