Neil Rosewarn has enjoyed a passion for photography and art for the past 20 years. He studied photography at Portsmouth University and during his time there had an overwhelming urge to take his camera underwater. His first project was to photograph swimmers during their daily training sessions at Portsmouth Northsea swimming club.

Being passionate about art, design and photography as well as nature, outdoor pursuits and travel; underwater photography provides Neil with a perfect medium in which to work. Travelling to Egypt, Malaysia, Seychelles, Cayman, Philippines, Micronesia and of course the Cornish coast provides a feast of visual opportunity.

Neil is an active member of the British Society of Underwater Photographers (BSoUP) and regularly enters competitions. His most recent and significant achievment to date is winning the Scuba Pro Young Photographer Award in the British Underwater Image Festival. He has also reached the semi final of the 2007 Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards as well as 2nd and 3rd in the best photo of 2006 BSoUP Focus On competition. He uses a Nikon SLR camera with a Sea and Sea housing.

Neil wants to use his abilities as an underwater photographer to celebrate the amazing diversity of life that our planet holds. Hopefully people will see and enjoy his work and do their best to protect and preserve the coral reefs and eco systems.
