Find Me On:
Patsee Ober Photography is based out of Laguna Beach, CA. I have been creating these photographs for almost half a decade. While I mainly photograph the tide pools of the Laguna Beach coastline, there are no limits. One of my goals is to photograph tide pools around the world.There is no manipulation of these images on the computer or a darkroom. They are what my eye discovers and my camera captures. This sea life of shapes, colors and forms amazes and astounds me as they appear in my work. My intention has always been to explore these tide pools, not to alter them. I work to find the right camera angle from which the inhabitants and the environment can be the most they can be – whatever that is! The intimacy of the tide pools allows me to explore space, angles, reflections and light as they constantly change with the tide, currents and orbit of the sun. As an ocean person, my concern with saving our oceans is personal and vital to our environment. As an underwater/tide pool photographer, I become a representative for these saltwater inhabitants, and a spokesperson for saving their abstract cosmos by showing the world how life can be, beneath the sea, in a tide pool of reflections and light.
