About Susan Knight Studios

Susan is a Biologist, photographer, dive/snorkeling instructor and naturalist guide who has been guiding, writing and teaching about the natural world and how important it is for our health and mental wellness for over 20 years. She has had the opportunity to take people hiking, pinzguaring, snowshoeing, scuba diving, snorkeling and organize meditation and adventure retreats in several locations around the world. Also an experienced leader with kids camps and youth programs, an investigation of her backpack will likely reveal spare outdoor gear and snacks. 

Most of her water work has been in the Pacific Northwest, Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean. She is immensely inspired by travel, exploration and the beauty of nature. While living in Hawaii, she fell in love with under water photography and launched Susan Knight Studios. Some of the images she has accumulated also appear in her 'Sea Yourself' adventure clothing line.
Sometimes known as “The Mermaid Photographer” she enjoys working with the outgoing as well as the camera shy, to capture underwater portraits that express unique personal essence and power. As an innovator of the Water Messages photoshoot, she assists people in exploring their connection with water and, therefore, themselves. 

As an artist, she believes that focusing on joy, beauty, and bringing awareness to self and environment engages creative outlets we can explore and develop, for a more fulfilling life. Susan has worked extensively with professional Mermaids and loves that being a mermaid is a viable career choice.
Her photography has been featured in Sport Diver Magazine, Mermaids & Mythology Magazine, Freesurf Magazine, Big Island Weekly, 72 & Rising Magazine, Organic Spa Magazine, Buzzfeed, Barnacle Babes Magazine (Cover, writer), Ocean Artist's Society Magazine (Cover, writer), Spirit & Destiny Magazine(UK), and the book Mermaids 101. She is a published co-author of marine life teaching curriculum distributed by REEF and PADI. 
May you find your passion and live it.
