Umeed Mistry

Deep sea diver and photographer
Initially having explored the world of academics through Marine Biology, Umeed realised that his heart and mind were happier while submerged. He has spent the last 20 years scuba diving, teaching and furthering the spirit or biophilia through his area of expertise. Professionally teaching as a PADI staff instructor, Umeed now conducts specialised underwater photography courses designed to address both ecology and photography. His imagery ranges from fine art to scientific documentation – his practice draws one’s eye to aquatic systems and the detail within. Umeed has applied this combination of skills and interests across fields – with numerous popular publications, book contributions, exhibitions, educational material and in the setting up of a marine research dive facility on the Andaman Islands.
