Kelly Walkotten

Hudsonville, MI, United States

I am an avid nature photographer, whose hobby began with an underwater point and shoot camera. My first love is the nature found in the 3/4s of the world covered with water. I didn’t start photoing underwater until thirteen years ago, I began scuba diving at 12 years old while living in Hawaii. With more camera gear than luggage, I have dove many exciting sites in the Caribbean and Pacific. My Caribbean adventures include multiple trips to Bonaire, the Caymans, Belize, and Roatan. Pacific destinations include Fiji, Galapagos, Hawaii, Papua New Guinea, Great Barrier Reef, and the Philippines. I also spent a total of 10 weeks in Indonesia in 2009 and 2010, documenting the diverse and unusual creatures in North Sulawesi and Raja Ampat, some of the most pristine reefs in the world.
