Since I can remember myself, I was attracted to the sea and its mysteries. My first dive took place in the Red Sea when I was only six years old, and since then I have been fascinated with the diversity of life forms and their behavior, colors, shapes, and patterns.
Today, I am a marine biologist, underwater photographer, and a naturalist. Most of my photographic and scientific journeys focus on capturing unique moments of unseen behavioral and reproductive phenomena of coral reef inhabitants.
In many cases, underwater photographers are drawn to big fish and other animals due to their interesting behavior, abundance, brilliant colorations, or sheer size. In my photography, I try to bring into the spotlight the backbone of the fascinating underwater tropical world: stony corals. They are the engineers, architects, and the artists that build and maintain the complex reef structures, and breathe life into them.
