Photographer of the Week – Joyce Ng
By Lia Barrett, June 30, 2016 @ 04:00 AM (EST)

From wide angle to macro to finding herself in front of the lens, Photographer of the Week, Joyce Ng, is a dynamic ocean ambassador in the best sense. Based out of Hong Kong, Joyce has been exploring different parts of Southeast Asia over the past five years, capturing everything from sea fans to frogfish, in the hopes that she can share her love and passion for the underwater world with her peers who would otherwise not get to see such wonders. 

But Joyce has taken her ideas of conservation and human connectedness to another level. Unlike many photographers who shudder at the thought of being in front of the camera, Joyce will put down her camera, and take up a mermaid tail and swim into other peoples’ frames, endeavoring to make the ocean-human connection even more tangible. And so perhaps, if you are ever diving Southeast Asia, you may just be lucky enough to find yourself on the same boat as this talented shooter and siren.
