Tristen’s biography :

I grew up in South Florida. Through the course of my career I’ve spent years traveling the world teaching photography classes, hosting retreats and sharing my love of all things aquatic. As a certified SCUBA diver, certified freediver and award winning Professional Photographer, my enthusiasm and love for the water is evident in the images and experiences I’m able to immortalize through my photography. I have over 14 years of experience, more than 5 of which I have spent specializing in underwater photography, which I feel unites to render mesmerizing images! My overwhelming passion for the underwater world is seamlessly combined with my eye for all forms of beauty to shoot stunning photos, whether it be above or below the surface, as well as sea life or even an enchanting sunset painted in the heavens. I strive to become a master of boudoir and have incorporated this talent into my underwater work, perfectly capturing the flowing female form to truly showcase the beauty and elegance lying therein. My heart and soul are expressed through the lens of my camera.
