Jun de Leon has a new life-and it's under the sea
MetadataShow full item record
All it takes is a dive or two, De Leon says, and all is well in his world. The critter pictures on these pages, taken with a Canon Eos M3 (De Leon is a Canon ambassador), were from quiet dives with only his spotter, Raymond Salamillas, for company. “I’m a slow learner,” he says of this new hobby. “I like it that way. Maybe because even at my age, I’m still trying to learn new things and improve in whatever I’m into.” Whereas he admired the likes of Romy Vitug during his photojournalist days, De Leon now looks up to premier Filipino underwater photographer Gutsy Tuason, and National Geographic explorer David Doubilet, arguably one of the best underwater photographers on the planet.
