Terry Steeley


An active and passionate diver since 1997, it was not until the Spring of 2012 that Terry first took a DSLR camera into the water. Immediately hooked, he describes himself as ‘no longer a diver. I am now an observer, and the oceans, rivers and lakes are my studio.’

His love for underwater photography led him to take a work sabbatical in 2013, choosing to challenge himself to shoot in many different environments to further his knowledge and experience. During this time Terry travelled to the Bahamas, Maldives, Philippines, Egypt, South Africa, Alaska, Thailand and Wakatobi.

With sand between his toes and a taste of the ocean on his lips Terry never returned full-time to his office but continues to shoot the wonders of the deep from the very small to the spectacularly large. Big animals have become his passion and his insatiable appetite keeps him motivated and constantly looking for new adventures.
