Debbie began scuba diving while backpacking in Australia. She completed her PADI Open Water and Advanced qualifications on the Great Barrier Reef in 2001. Debbie has always enjoyed photography owning cameras since she was very young. Underwater photography came later after she completed her divemaster course.
Since then they have been shooting with a Canon 5D Mark II with a Sea&Sea housing and Inon Strobes and more recently with a Canon 5D Mark III. Debbie and Jerry have combined photography with their work as Cruise Directors in one of the top ten liveaboards in Indonesia. In May 2012 they were married in Bali and became the Arriaga husband and wife team. You can see their work on social media under the name of Our Ocean Images.
Debbie has had several photographs published in magazines and appeared in many promotional videos.
