We are Puddle Pics
Jo has been an underwater photographer for over 15 years. She was introduced to the idea of photographing kids underwater when she met Stuart Ireland from Calypso Productions in Cairns. His 30 years experience in underwater photography and videography inspired her to learn the craft and start her own business. Her passion for working with children grew after becoming a mother to Kayla and Sienna. Soon she was photographing her daughters underwater and the positive reaction she received was so overwhelming that she realised there was a growing demand for professional underwater photography in swim schools. Puddle Pics was born.
Georgia (or “Red” to the team) is an underwater photographer. She loves working with kids and doing something fun that they can show off to their family. She grew up near the Yarra River so being in the water is like second nature to her! So much so that sometimes she gets called a mermaid.
What I love the most about working for Puddle Pics is the challenge of juggling a camera, children and photographing underwater in different pools.
I have been a professional photographer for around three years but photography has always been a passion. I’ve loved swimming for as long as I can remember! My sister and I grew up swimming in the river near our home.

Swimming has always been part of Jane’s life – from beach visits and school carnivals as a child to summers in the backyard pool with her grandchildren.
She loves seeing children inspired to swim the best they ever have done – infront of the camera. She has been working with Puddle Pics since April 2018, out of retirement and into the water!
I love the energy of interacting with the children and how enthusiastic they get when they see the pictures you’ve taken for them underwater!
I started experimenting with photography back in 2014 during my visual art studies and have been hooked ever since! I’ve always been keen for learning new techniques and styles to add to my creative drive.
Growing up I spent my fair share of swimming at local pools and the beach in summer.

Debbie thinks that her fascination with the water started in her mum’s tummy!
She started swimming lessons at 6 and kept up the training to compete at a state level. She has held a few district records along the way but has since hung up her racing goggles to work full time in marketing.
She thinks that the water gene has passed on to her son, who knew how to splash water on command before his first birthday!
Coreena AKA CocoSay she has been an underwater photographer for over a year now.
She loves putting a smile on children’s faces and hearing them laugh! She also loves being able to capture beautiful memories. Being in the water is nothing new to Coco, having started swimming lessons at 6 years old. Since then, swimming has been the only sport you’ll ever see her participate in!
I love the Puddle Pics team, everyone is super awesome and seeing all the kids smile because they are so proud of themselves makes me super happy. I have been a photographer for around 9 years. I first fell in love with photography around 14 years and have never wanted to do anything else since. I grew up swimming and always went to the beach with my family. My mum would always have trouble getting me out of the water.
I have been working with Puddle Pics since it started in 2011. I love the interaction with the parents and kids. I get to meet such a diverse group of people and travel all over Sydney. I have been swimming since early childhood. We had a beach house growing up and I remember having lessons and my dad teaching me.
