Marine biologist LAWRENCE SCHEELE reveals the underwater magic of the South East

The many who follow Marine biologist LAWRENCE SCHEELE on Instagram have been introduced to a rare Eurobodalla region local. Lawrence has gained International acclaim for his incredible underwater photography. In a Featured Photographer interview with DIVE Magazine UK Lawrence said: "G'day, I'm a 23-year-old underwater photographer and marine biologist from Australia. For as long as I can remember, I've always been fascinated with the ocean, in particular cephalopods (octopus, cuttlefish, squid). I picked up my first underwater camera during a family holiday to Lord Howe Island, and it was here where I fell in love with snorkelling, freediving and being surrounded by marine life. Unlike most underwater photographers, my images are captured while freediving and not scuba diving. My current mission involves travelling Australia and around the world in search for obscure marine species to photograph and ultimately I hope to bring educational and conservational awareness to the known and lesser-known creatures of the ocean."
