Lucy Agace

Photographer Writer Teacher

Underwater photography and studying marine life is my great passion and sharing it with other people equally so“.

I have had an incredible journey over the last 30 years where amazing dive experiences, encompassing the world, have left an everlasting appreciation and respect for marine life. Photography has always been my medium of choice. But it’s the marine life experiences that I cherish, because I feel a personal connection during my encounters. The small marine critters featured in my photos have their own special characters. I feel they find me as much as I find them which l acknowledge with gratitude.

It is with great pleasure that I share my marine life knowledge and u/w photography skills to help others gather their own experiences and appreciate how beautiful and special our underwater world is.

I am an ardent marine conservationist and regularly highlight global and local issues on my facebook and twitter pages. I am a founder member of a new CORALL alliance in Barbados. CORALL was set up to conserve and restore the reef ecosystems here.

I specialise in compact camera systems because they are easy to use, less heavy and affordable. They also have inter-changeable underwater lenses so on one dive you can photograph a tiny shrimp and a wreck! I use two INON strobes to bring light and colour to my photographs. 

I Offer

Photography Tuition Marine Life Encounters

On the beautiful island of Barbados I provide a number of services and courses designed to enhance your holiday experience and further your photography skills.

For keen photographers I teach the certified INON level 1 u/w photography classes at my Barbados Underwater Photography Academy (BUPA). This course can run between 3-4 days and is part classroom and diving. This is a certified course.

I also offer specialised private daily or hourly u/w photography tuition which is designed to suit your particular requirements. If you just need a little help with something in particular then this is a good option. I also take guided dives showing you various subjects depending on what you are looking for or just pointing out what I see.

If you can’t dive but would like to see some of the wonderful marine life on Barbados then a snorkelling trip might suit you. My popular guided safaris to see seahorses, turtles, rays,  octopus, frogfish and lots of other critters are unique and will leave you with unforgettable memories. Snorkelling – Take a 1 hour marine life guided tour as part of your holiday and see things you didn’t know were there!  View more details click here (BUPA)
