Marine Life Photography
For a very long time my diving explorations and underwater photography focused almost exclusively on shipwrecks. Over time, however, I became more and more interested in the marine life that had transformed these shipwrecks into magnificent artificial reef sites. And as my own metamorphosis continued, my love of underwater photography led me to appreciate the beauty of the creatures inhabiting this world for their own sake. While I have not lost my passion for exploring and photographing shipwrecks, I have become equally happy making images of the fascinating array of creatures living in the sea. I only hope that you enjoy the selection of images here half as much as I enjoyed making them!
