OUTEX: Affordable Underwater Camera Housing

Growing up in Southern California near the beach I always thought ocean and surf photography was cool, interesting, and something I wanted to try. I remember specifically looking into underwater housings a few times on the internet and immediately being discouraged with how expensive and unobtainable they were on my small budget. Beyond the surf photography I began to see really cool concepts shooting in or under water from Chase Jarvis’ “Blue” to the more recent Benjamin Von Wong’s Underwater Realm Projects like these spark my creativity and make me wonder about the possibilities of being able to take my camera where most don’t but again the underwater housings haven’t become much cheaper since I first looked into them starting well over $1000.
