68 MacDirectory CONTENTS DEPARTMENT Claire McAdams Underwater Imagery 68 MacDirectory MacDirectory is proud to showcase Claire McAdams, a graduate of Southwestern University with a BFA in Musical Theatre and special passion for photography. MacDirectory's Publisher Markin Abras, chatted with Claire to further understand the challenges of underwater photography. Markin Abras: What made you interested in developing the underwater shoot? Claire McAdams: I started dabbling in photography and creative portraiture nine years ago and from the beginning I was irresistibly drawn to water. The way it moves, splashes, and catches light never failed to turn a simple portrait into a dynamic image with a story to tell. While searching for inspiration, I was left speechless when I stumbled across work by underwater photographers Zena Holloway, Scott Rhea, and Mallory Morrison. They harness the weightlessness, unique lighting, and alien settings found underwater to create photographs that transport the viewer to fantastic new worlds. To say I was inspired would be a massive understatement. From that moment, I knew I needed to invest in equipment necessary to give it a try.
