JESS HADDEN - THE MAN BEHIND THE LENS
Jess is a professional photographer / videographer specialising in underwater imagery.
Jess’ love for photography began at the age of 15 when he first began scuba diving, in absolute awe of the world that lie beneath the surface he felt he had to share its vast beauty with the world in order to protect it. Since completing his Diploma of Marine Studies and Padi dive master internship he put university on hold to follow his passion for the ocean and a career in underwater photography and videography.
Over the past seven years Jess has been based in Exmouth and Coral Bay on the doorstep to the world heritage listed Ningaloo Reef.
Working onboard whale shark, manta ray and humpback whale swimming interaction tours it has allowed Jess to capture some extraordinary wildlife encounters on camera. One of his favourite images has been nominated for the 2019 Australian Geographic nature photographer of the year awards.
