Renowned underwater photographer Scott "Gutsy" Tuason bagged the 2017 Underwater Photography Book of the Year prize awarded by the Underwater Photographer of the Year organization. His book, Blackwater Open Blue, launched in April 2016, features stunning photographs he's taken in open water.

Dr. Alex Mustard, one of the world's leading underwater photographers, says, "Individual blackwater images have been regularly winning macro contests for the last few years, but this is the first major collection of this exciting new branch of underwater photography...a great strength of this book is that it contrasts them with daylight shots, of the great creatures of the big blue." Mustard, one of the judges, also described it as "groundbreaking."
