Alex joined us on board Mermaid II as Video Pro/photographer in December 2013. His passion for underwater photography started in 2011 in the Andaman Sea, Thailand working on liveaboards there and Alex hasn’t put the camera down since. Alex has worked all over the world including an internship with Emmy Award Winning underwater film company Scubazoo, in Malaysian Borneo and later running a small film and photography company in the Caribbean Panama. Alex was lured back to the biodiverse waters of Komodo in 2013 and shortly after coming back found himself and his cameras aboard Mermaid II in early December ready to ’set sail‘ for The Crossing to Raja Ampat.
Alex works with a Canon EOS 7D, Nauticam Housing, and is set up for both wide angle and macro film and photography. He is happy to help anyone with any film and photography questions and is available for film and photo courses aboard Mermaid II.
While he thoroughly enjoys encounters with mantas, his favorite fish is the Long Fin Batfish .
