12 Feb Jason Brown – Speaker Profile
What came first? Photography or diving?
For professional photographer Jason Brown, it’s not an easy question to answer. Having learnt to dive back in the late 1990s, it didn’t take long for Jason to realise that simply being underwater wasn’t enough – he also wanted to capture what he saw and share it with a wider audience. From the moment he took his first film camera underwater, he was hooked.
An accomplished technical trimix and cave diver certified through Global Underwater Explorers, Jason’s first attempts at underwater photography were less than stellar but they taught him some valuable lessons. Lessons that, as the years have gone on, have given him the techniques, knowledge and experience to capture eye-catching photography that has graced the pages – and covers – of numerous magazines across the globe. He is a regular contributor to a number of diving publications both here in the UK and abroad.
In addition to his magazine work, Jason’s photography has also provided striking and inspirational imagery for a number of leading dive industry manufacturers and training agencies. His photography – both topside and underwater – has been used on a diverse range of promotional materials ranging from training agency certification cards to adverts, pull-up banners, brochures and even entire exhibition stands.
Jason takes great pride in capturing eye-catching and unique images in challenging environments – whether it’s cold, green water or deep inside a cave, Jason prides himself on always getting the shot. While he enjoys the lure of warm, clear blue water as much as anyone, Jason is most at home in the cold, green waters that surround the UK.
At Go Diving 2020, Jason will be focusing on a subject dear to his heart – shipwrecks. Using the historic wrecks of Scapa Flow in the Orkney Islands as the backdrop for his talk, Jason will reveal the tricks and techniques he uses to capture shots of these world-class wrecks in the limited visibility that is commonplace here in the UK. Join him on a tour of the magnificent battleships and cruisers of Scapa Flow and discover for yourself what it takes to capture them on camera.
