Why the hell I do whatever it is I do with UW photography and why you should too

Jason Bradley: Why the hell I do whatever it is I do with underwater photography. And why you should too
Why are you using strobes? Seriously! Why? Why are you using one shutter speed and not the other, or one technique vs. another; why are you stylizing your images in the way you do, or composing like that? These strangely conspicuous questions, as I began asking them to myself, changed the way I see photography, and it’s time you ask yourself the same questions. And… I’ll of course show lots pics and prints from my recent trips including, the Bahamas, Socorro, and deep in the Gulf of Mexico to document the Mississippi submarine canyon and the site of the Deep Water Horizon.
Jason is a nature and underwater photographer based in Monterey, California and is happiest photographing and telling stories of aquatic ecosystems. In nature or in the studio, Jason is a self-taught photographer with a dynamic portfolio consisting of land and seascapes, wildlife, portraiture, science, conservation issues, adventure sports, and still life’s in a myriad of styles.
Jason runs Bradley Photographic Workshops, providing field and classroom seminars for photographers, and he’s partnered with Wetpixel.com to lead many of their photo expeditions around the world for underwater photographers. Jason’s seminars instruct on digital photo techniques, retouching and post processing, digital asset management, digital printing, and he specializes in Adobe software such as Lightroom and Photoshop.
Jason also operates Bradley Photographic Print Services offering archival pigment ink prints for photographers along with file processing and retouching, ICC profiles, and consulting. Furthermore he serves on the Education Committee for the Center for Photographic Art.
Don’t forget, NCUPS’ Monthly Club Meeting is now held at the Round Table Pizza in San Mateo.
