Marine life portraits are a great addition to any underwater photo portfolio. Like portraits on land, underwater portraits convey a sense of the subject’s personality. They also highly unique features of the subject, from eyes to colors to appendages like a vibrant heart of a jellyfish or the mesmerising flying of a nudibranch. As photographers we know that amazing photo opportunities rarely occur in our comfort zones. We want the shot no one else has taken, from a viewpoint no one else has ever considered. And what a better world than underwater: With more than 90 percent of our oceans left to explore, that makes for a lot of uncharted territory.
