BEHIND THE LENS

"Uncovering the great mysteries of our oceans"

Talia Greis is a self taught, internationally acclaimed underwater photographer from Sydney Australia. Born and raised in the coastal city regions of the Eastern Suburbs, her appreciation for ocean life exploded while diving Ningaloo Reef, WA. 

"Understanding the rich diversity and abundance of our country's underwater world flipped a switch that made it essential for me to take a camera below the surface as soon as possible. Not only to be able reproduce some of the fine moments nature has to offer, but also to be able to completely understand for myself, the true colours and complexities of what I had been witness to". 

Always one to capture a moment as it unfolds, Talia realised that her role in diving had changed, and in present days finds it impossible to dive without peering through the lens.
