Egypt. Red Sea. Shark Reef
The drop off of Shark reef is located in the north of the Red Sea off the coast of Egypt. For us, Shark Reef is one of the top ten dives in the world and it is the southern point of the Sina¨peninsula. The wall falls to more than 300 meters (900 feet) of depth but most of the marine life is located in the first 30 meters (90 feet). It is a real explosion of colors because the variety of hard and soft coral colonies. These banks of coral are covered by corallian fish trying to hide from their natural predators. If you turn back the wall, there is a splendid light that irradiates the blue water. This light is a consequence of the deep depth because there is no sand to reflect it. In the open water, you can meet huge school of fishes like bat fish. If there is no current coming from north, Shark Reef offers a great surprise: huge sea fans located at 30 meters. They grew filtering the plankton brought by the current. They are in a perfect shape because there are not many divers at this depth. If you go close to the surface, the wall becomes the home of huge coral tables called acropora.
Shark Reef is on the most beautiful drop off in the world even if the sharks which gave the name of the site have disappeared for many years. But Shark Reef should be a site to be dive at least once in a diving life.

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.
