The Scuba Vs Tumour Adventures of PT Hirschfield (Pink Tank Scuba)
Newport Scout Hall, 6 Market St Newport. 7.30Pm Thursday September 13th 2018.
PT Hirschfield is an underwater photographer specialising in marine life portraits and marine animal behaviour videos.
She shares her images, short films and her 'Scuba Vs Tumour' adventures on her Pink Tank Scuba Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and blog at www.pinktankscuba.com. She is a monthly columnist for Dive Log Australasia magazine, and in 2017 she led the Project Banjo #RaysAwareness campaign to champion improved regulation regarding the treatment of stingrays throughout Victoria, an initiative which was awarded a Victorian Coastal Award in 2018.
While PT loves diving in countries like the Philippines, Fiji, Vanuatu, the Maldives, Solomon Islands and Indonesia, she is even more passionate about sharing the marine life she meets in Victoria's Port Phillip Bay where she dives several times each week.
She was recently additionally awarded the overall Australasian Underwater Photographer of 2018 in the Australasian International Dive Expo (AIDE), featuring images taken beneath her favourite local piers.
In her presentations, she hopes to inspire a love of life, resilience regardless of what life throws in our direction and a greater sense of awe and wonder about marine life that can develop into an even greater sense of custodianship.
