Photographer of the Week – Christina Hepburn
By Lia Barrett, March 16, 2017 @ 05:00 AM (EST)


Photographer of the Week, Christina Hepburn, is most certainly a woman who brings her fiery passion and savvy go-getter attitude into whatever she pursues. Not only is she a highly successful businesswoman, but she is also a dive instructor, accomplished painter, adventurer, published writer and underwater photographer. It’s difficult to imagine how Christina manages her busy schedule, between frequent dive expeditions, trade shows, workshops and business, but one imagines that her frequent flyer status helps her with all of the dreaded overage charges that plague many an underwater shooter.

But what I love about Christina and her work is that she is so inclusive in wanting others to share in the experience. I often get messages from her tempting me with a trip to French Polynesia, Cocos or some other extremely desirable destination. I usually have to live vicariously through the fruits of her journeys in her images, but I am able to relish in the joy that is exuded through her work. And hopefully one day, I’ll be able to take her up on that spontaneous liveaboard to the unknown, and will get to witness firsthand the drive and exuberance that radiates from her beautiful photographs.
