UWP: JOE QUINN
























Joe Quinn began his journey into the world of photography as a professional dive instructor trying to bring a sense of the beauty and wonder beneath the surface back to those who have never experienced it themselves. Along the way he experimented with different digital darkroom techniques and created his own signature reinterpreted style of photographic art. Pushing the boundaries between art and photography, Joe Utilizes and blends the elements of color, light and motion, to create a surreal take on the liquid realm. 
His artworks, along with his traditional photographs and writings have been widely published in magazines and books. His company, Swimwitdafishes Photographic Dive Tees feature his work in full color graphics. Through his images and as a member of the Ocean Artists Society he hopes to raise awareness of how important it is to protect our oceans and the incredible life forms and seascapes that lie within them. 
A New York City native, Joe currently makes his home along the coast in Myrtle Beach, SC where he is busy diving, writing and creating new imagery.
