Egypt. Red Sea. Scenic views of Saint John Reefs
The coral reefs of St. John consist of small islands in the southern Red Sea off the Egyptian coast. They are located after the corner of Ras Banas. None of the islands are inhabited. They are all empty and just flush out of the water. The slopes of the islands are composed by magnificent drop-offs that go down to up -100 meters (300 feet) in the Red Sea. What is striking on the reefs of St. John is certainly the wealth of colorful soft corals (Alcyonarians). These are certainly with the Brothers Islands and Daedalus, most beautiful drop offs in the Red Sea.
The most beautiful dive sites are Gota Soraya, Gota Kebir, Habili Ali and Habili Gafar. In addition to the rich colors, the reefs are characterized by an incredible explosion of marine life. The slopes are covered with coral beds anthias fish, jacks. For us photographers and researchers of lights and colors, this area is a true paradise. Saint John's reefs are an oasis of life in the Red Sea. The richness of life can be explained by the strong currents that affect the reefs and bring the necessary nutrients to marine animals. Visibility is often exceptional, with more than 60 meters (180 feet).

We continually update our website with new and exciting features! As professional photographers of wildlife, underwater scenes, and landscapes, this mainly pertains to information about our work, as well as adventures we embark upon. Our professional photography blog is particularly written for photographers who are interested in discovering innovative doors of creativity through the medium of nature photography.
We are fascinated and passionate about the beauties of nature. We love to see the landscapes and observe wild animals whether on land or underwater. We have chosen to become professional photographers to share the emotions we feel when we observe nature whether it be on land or underwater. Our goal is to create art with our photographs. We always try to transform the banal into a contemplative and artistic interpretation.
We are wildlife professional photographers, landscape professional photographers and underwater professional photographers. We also strive to document nature with a focus on conservation and education.
We make art prints from our artistic photographs. These art prints are available on our website. We make exhibitions to show all the beauties and the incredible richness of nature that surrounds us.
We also love to share our love for the beauties of nature with other photographers. To communicate our know-how and to exchange our techniques and our points of view, we organize wildlife photography workshops, underwater photography workshops and landscape photography workshops. We gather together people who have the same passion as us for the beautiful photographs taken in nature.
