Gutsy Tuason refers to himself as the “Eddie Vedder of Underwater Photography”. To us, he’s less rockstar more pornstar (Ron Jeremy) and the rightful son of Neptune. Scott Tuason, or more notoriously known locally as “Gutsy Tuason” is the Philippines best underwater photographer bar none. He and I go way back, probably around eight years of friendship.
