Marine Natural History Photography and Cinematography
My name is Lloyd Clearihan and thanks for visiting my site. I have specialised in digital photography since the late 90's. In 2001 my first digital camera was destroyed when I was swept off a rock into the ocean trying to get a shot of a wave; the first time my two passions converged, in a literal sense. From there I went on to study marine biology and I worked in the public aquarium industry for over six years, spending my time underwater becoming acquainted with a vast array of amazing animals from the ocean.
Through my imagery I want to lift the veil on the ocean. When most people look out to sea they are unaware and even fearful of what lies beneath the seemingly limitless expanse of water, to them it is an alien realm, and it many ways it is. There is still so much we don't know about the ocean but already our human impact on it has been enormous and devastating. I want to help more people see the ocean the way I see it. I hope my images will eventually go some way increasing the familiarity of the ocean to more people, so that more people see the ocean as an amazing place full of diverse animals and environments that need to be conserved.
Soon I hope to be able to provide you with limited high quality prints of my work through this website, but at the moment I don't. However If there is an image of mine that you see and would like as a print let me know and I am sure I will be able to arrange something. From time to time you may be able to purchase prints in person from galleries and markets, to keep up to date check the Facebook page.
Commission me to provide you with high quality underwater stills or video for the project your working on. I can provide 2.7K cinema resolution video, 1080p full HD in silky smooth slow motion up to 60fps, or broadcast quality 720p video at up to super slow motion rates of 120fps. Many other resolutions are available to suit the project your working on so if you need great quality underwater stills or video contact me.
