About us

about-us-1024x576

Jim Chen is a Virgo while Lynn Wu is a Pisces, it seems their constellations work in perfect alignment as the duo has won 83 awards in international underwater photography competition. As a couple, they dive, shoot, discuss and study the works of other excellent photographers. Jim and Lynn often have differing opinions and often break out in lively discussion about the best technique for a particular shooting scenario.

The couple’s first foray into underwater world was in 2006 when they went on a snorkeling excursion to Palau; exposing them to the wonders of the coral reef. To get closer to the action, they completed the Open Water course in frigid 17℃ waters in Taiwan in 2007. Diving became a bigger part of their lives when Jim jumped into underwater photography on his fourth tank dive with a Sony P10 camera with underwater housing. With unwavering passion for the sea, the couple has logged 900 dives to date. You will find the couple diving every summer over every weekend at the Northeast Coast of Taiwan. They hop over to neighboring Philippines, Indonesia and Palau whenever they find the opportunity.
