About Little Dolphin Images underwater baby photographyLittle Dolphin Images is a family business, but with a big difference. Our vision is to help you create lifelong memories: helping you capture the beauty, the spirit, the adventurousness and happiness of your child in a way that few other portraits can.
Zac has won three international awards for his underwater work including:
*The prestigious Palme d'Or at the Antibes Underwater Film and Photography Festival
*Winner of the Canon British Underwater Image Festival
*Gold medal at the International Festival of Underwater Film and Photography
*He was a finalist twice recently in the Association of Photographers awards for creative and advertising photography
Zac's work includes shoots for Diesel, Speedo, Guinness, the BBC, Boots, Sony, Oxfam, British Heart Foundation, Merlin and Sealife Centres, London Aquarium and the Sunday Times. Zac also shoots open sea wildlife assignments: everything from Whalesharks in Kenya, Bullsharks in Cuba to Dolphins in Tahiti. You can see Zac's work at www.zacmacaulay.com.
A family partnershipZac set up Little Dolphin Images with the help and close involvement of his wife Fliss. They're very much a husband and wife team, having worked together on photographic assignments for over 15 years and they have three little dolphins of their own.
Cameras and equipmentZac uses the latest flagship Nikon professional camera shooting between 2 to 8 frames per submersion in a top of the range Seacam housing for the techies amongst you. He uses exactly the same equipment for photographing both babies, his ads and wildlife assignments.
