ADEX Pixel unites with Wetpixel to bring trending dialogues and deep-rooted tales on the pulse of Asia and the world’s underwater photography and videography
Underwater360° together with Wetpixel is proud to announce its latest collaboration in bringing the latest conversations on the art, trends and latest news on underwater photography and videography named “ADEX Pixel/Wetpixel’s PIXEL21″. Hosted by the publisher and the editor-at-large of the premiere community underwater photography and videography website, Wetpixel, Adam Hanlon convenes the industry’s masterful professionals and practitioners from both Asia and the western regions to deep dive into insightful sharings and experiences on the art.
Programmed monthly on #APE ADEX Pixel Expo 8th Monthly Virtual Event, ADEX Pixel/Wetpixel’s PIXEL21 is curated as a byte-sized infotainment session where Adam chats with invited guests representing Asia and the international region for 21 minutes each. Setting its discourse on each guest’s underwater photography/videography specialities, talks on gears, favourite dive spots, thoughts on the latest trends or competitions, Adam aims to bring an animated, effervescent, but most importantly an inspiring approach to both diving communities that will sit comfortably to both the professionals and aspiring underwater photographers or videographers out there!
Inaugurating its first session this August 8, 2021 [08.08.2021], in conjunction with #APE 8th Monthly Virtual Event – August Series, ADEX Pixel/Wetpixel’s PIXEL21 will be graced by Asia’s representative, Katherine Lu, an American-Taiwanese underwater photographer who is currently residing in Singapore. Dwelling within close proximity to the coral triangle, Katherine embarked into underwater photography in 2014 and soon developed a speciality for underwater macro photography, but she also loves photographing sharks and large pelagics when travel opportunities arise.
A self-taught, award-winning photographer who has won international awards for her images and has been featured in both print and online magazines, she will be sharing her love for Singapore southern islands’ best-kept secrets – Pulau Hantu – a macro-lovers haven. So do not miss her 21 minutes showcase and discover Singapore’s secret that not many will know! For more of Katherine’s work, do visit her website or her Instagram.
Save the date for #APE 8th Monthly Virtual Event – August Series global webcast on Sunday, August 8, 2021, and join us as we “Majulah Singapura” and celebrate Singapore’s birthday in advance.
