Ever since she started her professional career as an underwater photographer, Renee inspires enthusiasm at competitions, exhibitions and publications worldwide, especially with her impressive half and half shots and wide-angle photography. Her work has evolved into a fascinating combination of artistic talent, an affinity for oil painting and her professional background in biology.
As a Southern California native, the ocean has always been a large part of Renee’s life. Since she started scuba diving in 2004, she has been to some of the most remote parts of the world and developed a true appreciation for marine organisms with her diversified travels. Renee believes that striking images help increase awareness of our fragile marine ecosystems and encourage others to help protect our oceans.
I am always trying to capture the best images I can and require a housing that is not only reliable but can also accommodate varied shooting situations. I really appreciate the high-precision of SEACAM housings which are beautifully made and of the highest quality.Renee Capozzola
