Emilie scuba diving in Hong KongPhoto © Kevin Wong


About me

My name is Emilie and I learned to scuba dive in 2012, right here in Hong Kong, as a result of a rather random decision. Turns out it was an excellent one! Since day one I have been diving very regularly both locally and overseas, teaching myself underwater photography, and continuing with training. I undertook Advanced Nitrox and Deco Procedures courses in February 2015. In 2015 I also began learning to freedive. It would be hard for me to name something that I don’t find fascinating about the underwater world.

About this site

The aim of this site is to share images, information and insights from below the surface. I will discuss dive sites, underwater photography, training experiences and more. The focus will be on diving in Hong Kong and its unique marine ecosystem, but I will also cover overseas travel experiences and photographs. Hence green blue sea — green for Hong Kong and blue for abroad (usually)!

Equipment

For underwater photography, I use a Canon 5D MkII in a Hugyfot housing with two Sea&Sea YS-D1 strobes. I am still very much a learner of underwater photography methods and this site is an outlet for some of my work. Prior to January 2015 I was using a Sony RX100 in a Nauticam housing.

Other than that …

I am rarely without my camera on land either. My previous and now retired Hong Kong photoblog is still online, take a look here. I also take photos for the regular Time Out Hong Kong page ‘Hidden Hong Kong’. On this site, all photos are my own unless specified otherwise.

To get in touch, you can contact me here or don’t hesitate to comment on the blog posts. You can also follow this blog by ‘liking’ its facebook page. Enjoy!
