This is what happens when Arianne takes a weekend off! A new blog…
This is a selection of my photography from over the years.
I don’t pretend to be a professional photographer by any means, but I consider myself a serious amateur.
In my day job, I work as a research geologist in Australia – I’m effectively a consultant with a fancier job title. This has sent me all over the world – literally to all 7 continents. I’m fortunate to have a job that allows me to travel and see new places. I’ve ended up in some places that I never would have thought I’d ever go, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I’ve learned a lot about myself – and humanity in general. It’s always an experience, for better or for worse.
In my spare time, I like to travel a lot as well. I enjoy both topside and underwater photography, so shots from above and below the water will be posted on this blog. I learned to scuba dive when I was a teenager, but for financial reasons, rarely dived after I got certified – the pitfalls of being a broke student. I picked it back up more seriously in 2010. About 6 months after starting diving again, I bought my first underwater camera…Things moved on from there. However, I very much enjoy non-diving travel as well. I’ll fly to the US for a weekend to see a concert. I’ll fly somewhere to watch a sporting event. I’ll decide I want the peace and tranquility of the mountains or the rainforest. That being said, I do still love NYC and London- I like to shop! Honestly, if it weren’t for the necessity of working, I’d happily spend the rest of my days travelling the world and taking photos.
If you’ve got any questions about anything I post, don’t hesitate to leave me a comment!
