Life Thru Jillian's Eyes By Jillian C. Hurley

I started photography in the Phillipines, so I could show my (late)mom all the wonderful things I saw while snorkelling. Pretty soon I couldn't hold my breath long enough to get the picture I wanted so I got my Scuba certificate. I was off to the races, took my first underwater picture on my first dive after graduating. I got so involved in what I could see and how to best capture it, the next thing I know I was out of air and giving the dive master the ohhhh dear I'm in trouble signal, needless to say I always always put my air usage first and for front when I'm down, no matter how great the shot could have been.

All the photos I post are completely raw, as I haven't advanced enough to edit them.

Thru all of this my (late) mother and half of the sate of Idaho, all of my Filipino friends who live on that beautiful island called Batangas (most of them have never been in the ocean let alone seen what was under its surface) and my many new friends and family in Australia have ohhhe'd and awed over the underwater shots. I have since then moved to Queensland Australia where i live in a beautiful place called, Ball Bay. My pictures have taken another turn and so has my life with all the changes , it is my hope to be able to show more people the wonders as I see them.
