Photographer of the Week – Olga Torrey
By Joanna Lentini, October 5, 2017 @ 04:00 AM (EST)

Photographer of the Week Olga Torrey has been photographing the magical creatures and landscapes of our oceans for nearly seven years now. Originally from Russia, Olga has been based in New York City for the past 25 years. Together with her dive buddy, Larry Cohen, they speak quite often on their dive experiences and underwater photography.

Olga is a fine artist and life member of the Art Students League of New York. She travels the world frequently in search of pelagics—her favorite underwater subjects. Through the images that follow, it is easy to see how much of an affinity she has for the big stuff. I particularly love her intimate captures of the curious California sea lions at Mexico’s Isla Espiritu Santo. Olga's vivid images and articles have been published internationally.
