Jenna Martin's TEDx on Becoming an Underwater Portrait Photographer

If there is such a thing as a direct path to a career in underwater photography, Ambassador Jenna Martin didn't find it. After acquiring her Master's in Psychiatric Rehabilitation, she knew she wanted to make a career change into the creative arts. But which one? And how?

Hear how Jenna built her own underwater housing, learned about the art form, and then did what some of us only dream about... she actually became a successful underwater photographer. Without so much as a SCUBA certification.
