Rita is a half Korean/German self-taught, international award-winning photographer; living on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Australia. When home from traveling, she looks after her trusted clientele as a Physiotherapist/Osteopath and shares her stories of adventures.
Rita’s great passion is capturing the beauty of this blue planet mostly with marine wildlife in it. Rita just returned from a incredible 6 week sailing yacht photographing Antarctica from above and underneath.
She offers tours to her home in Western Australia Ningaloo Reef to swim with the Whale sharks and Manta rays and also to Tonga to photograph the whale migration of Humpback whales.
