My Underwater World – Yvonne McKenzie

Yvonne McKenzie, based on Australia’s own Christmas Island, shares her underwater world with Diveplanit.
How did you get into underwater photography in the first place? – Well, ever since I was a young teenager, I always loved taking photos and never went anywhere without a camera. Even today, I still remember my first “camera”: a flat rectangle shape, yellow and black in colour, made of plastic where the flash and 35mm film took up most of the space and left very little room for a “lens”
