As we reported in August, the world’s largest purpose-driven diving organization and SeaLegacy, the international conservation and production organization, joined forces to launch the new ‘30x30’ initiative. 

30x30 aims to protect 30 percent of the world’s oceans by 2030 – by creating a global network of marine protected areas, the initiative aims to safeguard the health and biodiversity of the world’s oceans and to help to combat the effects of climate change.

Niall Hampton

Niall is the editor of Digital Camera Magazine, and has been shooting on interchangeable lens cameras for over 20 years, and on various point-and-shoot models for years before that. 

Working alongside professional photographers for many years as a jobbing journalist gave Niall the curiosity to also start working on the other side of the lens. These days his favored shooting subjects include wildlife, travel and street photography, and he also enjoys dabbling with studio still life. 

On the site you will see him writing photographer profiles, asking questions for Q&As and interviews, reporting on the latest and most noteworthy photography competitions, and sharing his knowledge on website building.
