Alex Kydd

If you’re looking for a photographer that takes their images to new depths; meet Alex Kydd.  A full time underwater and wildlife photographer, Kydd is originally from Melbourne but now based on the west coast of Australia in Ningaloo Reef. After studying marine biology, Alex developed his passion for photography after working on the Great Barrier Reef in 2015. Now, five years on, Alex spends (most of) his time underwater, transporting viewers from the screen to the serene.

Although they say that a picture is worth a thousand words, Alex’s photographs are so much more. Using a free-diving technique for his shots (that’s when you rely on holding your breath until you resurface- no scuba gear!). Alex has also been assigned as the ambassador for SunButter Suncare – a coral reef safe sunscreen. Regardless of what Alex is doing or where he is based, his work is all part of his mission to showcase the beauty of our oceans – whether that be circled by jellyfish on an Indonesian island, up close and personal with reef sharks in The Bahamas or exploring the mystical crevices of coral gardens on Ningaloo Reef.

Allysha Cartledge 

Born in Perth,  Allysha Cartledge is an aerial photographer, now based in Broome, who uses a birds-eye perspective transporting viewers on a tantalising journey. Growing up, Allysha has always had a gift for the creative things in life – whether that be drawing, painting or exploring nature and the environment around her. Today, Allysha has combined her childhood dreams to shape most of her work and to also help her understand an array of wildlife to ignite her passion.

Often to be found along Western Australia’s Kimberley Region, there’s no doubt that her surroundings play a significant role for her photography. Allysha continues by saying that, “my passion for aerial photography has grown immensely since being here – the unique Kimberley landscape continues to inspire me.” From starting off with a camera in 2013, five years later Allysha was introduced to drone photography and was instantly hooked and has been ever since. Transporting not only her art’s admirers but also herself through the wings of her camera in order to gain a unique perspective and outlook on places never seen before.

Besides her tantalising portfolio of photography and video work, Allysha is also currently in the process of expanding her knowledge on digital art. In the meantime, let Allysha paint the picture for you.
