Photographer of the Week – Danny Spitz
By Joanna Lentini, November 9, 2017 @ 04:00 AM (EST)

In 1998, far from his London abode, Photographer of the Week Danny Spitz took his first plunge Down Under. Shortly after that first Aussie dive, the aerospace project manager picked up a disposable waterproof camera and started snapping away. But it wasn’t long before he found himself a proper camera and housing. Danny has always had a thing for photography. He spent his childhood critiquing his father’s images and is now working on combining his love of diving, photography, and engineering to produce some new and improved underwater camera gear.

While he has an affinity for both pelagics and macro critters, for the time being, Danny is focused on documenting the big stuff. I love the variety of underwater images he has produced and the fact that he has shot on just about every continent—from North America to Asia, Africa, and Australia. He clearly has a great eye for composition and I particularly like both the panning and black-and-white images he has shared.
