Katie's View

"I'm always observing the world around me and am never without a camera.

Influenced by the ocean my main passion is to use my images to show the real underwater world and how people of colour are welcomed into this space. The ocean is a place for everyone no matter their skin colour and together we ALL can protect and conserve the very place that takes care of us time and time again. 

Conservation is such an important part of preserving the ocean and its surrounding ecosystems. Education is vital to the existence of this vast blue aquatic realm, through conservation we can spread love, knowledge and understanding. 

Community Involvement, Educational Programs and School Curriculums are my main focuses for creating a bright and promising future for the younger Bahamian generations."
