Zena Holloway (b.1973, Bahrain/UK)
Zena Holloway is an underwater photographer and director born in Bahrain and based in London. Her interest in underwater photography started when she was 18 while working her way around the globe as a scuba diving instructor. Charmed by the magic of the underwater world, she began experimenting with a camera and gradually taught herself the skills needed to master this most technical of photographic techniques.
