Matt Nethaway - Insider Divers Photographer of the Month

Matt "Stryker" Nethaway was already a regular on our trips and quite content with just diving. One day he asked me between dives if he should get into photography which of course I thought was a great idea. He started off on a compact camera and captured some very strong images right there on his first trip. He quickly ascended in the equipment ladder with a Olympus Mirrorless and then the Nikon D850 that he uses today.

Matts has won awards at several Insider Divers workshops and was the overall winner in the 2019 Anilao Photo Workshop with his images of the yellow Goby in a green lit bottle. He is a thoughtful photographer who thinks about his images and presents them in his typical matter-of-fact way. I love his photos and looking forward to the next to come.
