Brady Watson – Rhode Island Nomination & Photography by Framed Photography Issue 64 of Inspiring Teens Magazine
Nomination: Brady started his love for photography and oceanography in high school. To foster this interest, he started working at a dive shop and photographed for the HS yearbook. He graduated in 2022 with a 4.2 GPA, his divemaster license, and enough AP credits to skip a semester in college. He was selected as the 2023 Boston Sea Rovers Intern where he'll be learning from dive professionals and taking advanced dive courses. Brady enjoys documenting his dives with his underwater camera. He currently attends the University of RI where he studies geological oceanography. He is on the Fall 2022 Dean's List.
What inspiring things about you does your nomination not cover? The only thing my interview does not include would be my love for helping people! Through both school and work as a scuba professional I have found the most enjoyment being able to support people and provide them the tools to succeed. In high school I was a tutor in any of the maths and sciences, and I loved seeing people’s eyes light up when they begin to understand.
What else would you like to talk about in your interview? I would love to talk about how photography has had an incredible impact on my life! Not only has it provided me tools to meet incredible people but it has allowed me to school people what the underwater world looks like in an artistic ways
If you were to present a topic to a group of your peers, what would it be and why? I could talk about the ocean and its importance endlessly! Through the lens of marine biology, oceanography, or pure enjoyment it is absolutely incredible. Photography has provided me with incredible tools for showing people the ocean and it’s beauty through a camera lens!
