Alix Martinez has captured imaginative scenes of children’s playing sports like golf, football, and tennis.
“I have always loved photographs that display ripples and reflections,” Martinez told us when we asked her why she enjoys underwater photography. “There’s something magical and beautiful when water is photographed. Since I am a children’s photographer, I am always trying to come up with ideas to photograph them in a unique way.”
Martinez explains, “Underwater photography can be quite difficult especially with little subjects. The first time I almost drowned because I saw a shot I did not want to miss, but It is so rewarding when you look at your images. When I started, I could only hold my breath for 25 seconds and now I feel like a marine going under for 2 minutes.”
