Photographer Profile

Christian Botella Photography: Underwater Wildlife & Tropical Rainforest Photography


Christian Botella

  Work Description

For the past 10 years I have been working as a professional underwater photographer operating my own business and supplying images to various tourist companies. My strengths are in the aquatic field: wide-angle, macro, fish behaviour and models. Living on the doorstep of the Great Barrier Reef and the World Heritage Wet Tropics allows me the opportunity to specialise in the marine wilderness, rainforest and remote landscapes of Tropical North Queensland, Australia.

  Experience & Qualifications

I have studied photography formally in France and America and have had exhibits in both countries. Being a specialist in underwater photography has led to being contracted by major tourist operators. I hold a current Underwater Photography Instructor rating.

  Other Interests

My interests are associated with nature and adventure. I have been diving, white water kayaking and bushwalking worldwide for the past 25 years in some of the world's most pristine, exotic and wild environments. My passion is to capture the wilderness and spirit of these unique places with my camera.
