Amanda Marie Lovell is an underwater photographer and PADI SCUBA Diving Instructor based in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
"I have always had a great appreciation for nature and would like to inspire that same admiration in others through my photography. I hope to capture powerful images that will captivate imaginations, inspire thought, and provoke action. This drive comes from a passion for all nature, and a desire to preserve it.
My main focus is to introduce a new generation to the beauty and importance of the underwater world. I spend most of my time underwater, photographing the bountiful and brightly coloured invertebrate life in Canada.
As a member of Canada's small but dedicated group of cold water divers I hope my photographs of the area will increase awareness, protection, and appreciation of the diverse life that exists in Canada's underwater ecosystems. As well as develop a national interest in Canadian cold water diving, and help to expand this branch of Canadian eco-tourism."
