Photographer of the Week – Rich Carey
By Joseph Tepper, August 27, 2015 @ 05:00 AM (EST)


Many years ago, Rich Carey decided that work sucked. With that knowledge, Rich started looking for a way to earn a living doing something he enjoyed.

He started off as a PADI Instructor in Egypt back in 2004, and soon became interested in underwater photography. Just three years later, Rich traded in a Olympus compact for a DSLR and housing, and spent a lot of time reading up on underwater photography, and diving to practice.

He took a job in the Bahamas practicing underwater photo and video, hoping to make the learning curve a little less steep. Rich then returned to Egypt to work as photo pro for a couple of dive centers in Dahab. After eight years in Egypt, it was time for a change of scenery. He now works aboard the MV Similan Explorer liveaboard in Thailand from November to May, and then works in Mallorca, Spain, for the European summer. As every day is spent diving and taking photos, he really doesn't mind getting up to go to “the office” anymore.

Rich admits that he doesn’t update his website as much as he should, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check out www.richardcareyphotos.com. From here, there are links to his stock photo gallery on Shutterstock and to his short book for beginner underwater photographers, on sale now on Amazon.
