Jennifer Adler is a conservationist, diver and underwater photojournalist based in Gainesville, Florida. She works with National Geographic, the Nature Conservancy and many other organizations to amplify the work of scientists and researchers that work in the water. She’s also a big advocate of Florida’s fresh water springs and it’s this environment that we explored on out shoot. Jenny took me out to Gilchrist Blue Springs State Park on the Santa Fe river, a short drive from Gainesville, where we snorkelled through incredible crystal clear waters. It was November, when the weather was colder and the springs were empty. This was my first time shooting video beneath the surface, the first time in a wetsuit (which I put on backwards!) and was a remarkable experience and I’m very happy with the results.
