Dr Alexander Mustard MBE, better known as Alex Mustard, has been taking underwater photographs since he was just 9 years old and has worked as a full time underwater photographer since 2004. Alex has a PhD in Marine Ecology and his combination of subject-matter expertise, underwater photography experience, technical innovation and sheer passion for what he does makes him one of the absolute best in the world at what he does. Alex photography has won many awards including European Wildlife photographer of the Year in 2013, 4x category wins in the British Wildlife Photography Awards and the ADEX Award for Extraordinary Contrubidon to Underwater Photography in 2016. In 2018, he was made an MBE for his achievements as an underwater photographer. He’s written more than 500 articles for photography, Marine, wildlife and diving publications as well as 5 books including Underwater Photography Masterclass.

He is the inventor of Magic Filters, a filter system specifically for underwater photography, he is the associate editor of Wetpixel.com an online community for underwater photographers and he teaches underwater photography workshops all around the world. So, its fair to say we’re talking to an expert here!

I know nothing about this kind of photography so it was fascinating for me to sit with Alex and just witness his sheer enthusiasm for what does. Alex simply overflows with experience, expertise, field craft and an incredible knowledge of the wildlife and ecosystems he photographs. It’s a real privilege to have him on the show so I hope you enjoy my conversation with Alex Mustard.
