Bluzone is a underwater photography agency run by internationally renowned underwater photographer Alex Misiewicz.

Alex learned to dive in New Zealand after returning from his first O.E. His first open water dive was at the Poor Knights and from then on he was hooked leading many trips back up north in the following 2 years for an Auckland dive company.

He headed back overseas again when the thirst for adventure again became too strong and he has travelled and dived extensively around the globe.

Alex moved back to his native New Zealand in 2003 after spending many years overseas (based mainly in the UK and Europe) to design and build a fast 12m dive RHIB to explore the offshore islands off Tutukaka, Northland.

During his time overseas he lived in the Egyptian Red Sea on many occasions over an 18 year period and worked as a dive guide, instuctor and even a stint as skipper of the infamous Ghazala 1 liveaboard.

 


Heading down into the blue

It was also during this time in Sharm El Sheikh in the mid 1980s that he discovered his passion for underwater photography and his camera quickly became his dive buddy. After hundreds of hours spent blowing bubbles his growing library of stunning Red Sea shots eventually lead to commissions from New Holland Publishers to produce images for "Dive Sites of the Red Sea" and "Fishes and Corals of the Red Sea" in the late 90s / early 00s.
