There are few better ways of sharpening your underwater photography skills than, well, in the water. And as a longtime liveaboard captain and director, underwater photographer Marc Povey has spent a ton of time in the water—from South Africa to the US Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Turks and Caicos, Tahiti, French Polynesia, and Belize.
It all started when Marc was working as a topside photographer for cruise ships. For 19 years, he chased around cruise ship guests like a paparazzo. It was this non-stop drive to nail the vacay shot that’s transferred for Marc’s pursuit of underwater subjects.
And so, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Marc’s is one of the most diverse portfolios we’ve published on DPG. If there was ever motivation to give up the 9-to-5 in favor of a full-time diving gig, the following series of images is it.
