Brent Durand Professional Photographer

Brent Durand is an avid California scuba diver, surfer, writer, photographer and marketer.

Brent has been diving since 1997 and working full time in the dive and underwater imaging industries since early 2013, building a career that blends passion and work into a lifestyle. His photography is widely published in print and advertising worldwide, with a client list that includes tourism boards, dive resorts, camera equipment manufacturers, and a wide range of media companies. He works full time as Brand Evangelist at SCUBAPRO and writes for scuba publications as time permits.

Brent has led underwater photo workshops in the Bahamas, California, Indonesia, Mexico, the Philippines and Sri Lanka, helping hundreds of guests take their photography to the next level.

Brent’s passion is creating unique images that convey raw ocean wilderness, most often while diving the rugged Northern California coast. When not working or diving, you’ll find Brent shooting photo and video, riding gravel and mountain bikes, traveling, surfing, or relaxing with the family.

How is this site funded? I’ve carefully researched every link taking you off the site: some go to useful information on the topic and some go to the cheapest authorized retailer for a product. The latter earns me a small affiliate commission. You still receive the best deal and I receive a small commission to help with hosting fees and other website expenses. Thanks for your support.
