Rebecca Griffiths – Freediving photography and conservation
Rebecca Griffiths first grabbed my attention via Instagram. Her account displays some beautiful photographs which I recognised instantly as having had minimal post-shot editing (quite a rare commodity these days). I continued to follow for a while and found that she was not only a photographer but a diver, free-diver and conservationist too.
As a youngster, Rebecca developed a life-long love for nature whilst living on the southern shores of England. Fast forward a number of years and she’s swapped out the white cliffs and overcast skies for the much warmer, bluer waters off the Sunshine Coast, Australia.
Keen to protect the oceans inhabitants Rebecca picked up a camera whilst simultaneously becoming a volunteer with Sea Shepherd. This has led to her representing and documenting 6 campaigns at home, and overseas with them.
Today we take a more in-depth look at Rebecca’s storyline and how Freediving is more advantageous during the efforts she is currently involved in. As well as discussing her passion and thoughts on photography.
Rebecca is very humble about her achievements, and I feel that she is a shining example of how an individual can be loud and make a statement without the need of a bellowing voice. I believe she has only just started her journey so I’m looking forward to what the future may hold for her and her talents with a camera.
