Welcome to Lee’s happy place. Lee has always loved photography and, once he started scuba diving, knew he wanted to take that passion underwater. This part of the website is dedicated to his work and his willingness to share what he’s learned with others through his Red Fish Underwater Photography School.

Lee’s current camera of choice is a Nikon D850. He also has a Olympus TG6 for lightweight travel. Most of his portfolio was shot with his previous camera – Nikon D80.
