Photographs of underwater sceneries of the Red Sea off Sudan
After the galleries showing the wreck of the Umbria and close-up photographs, here is a photo gallery showing the sceneries of the Red Sea coast off Sudan. All these photos were taken on the drop offs or banks bordering immense coral reefs flush with the surface. It is an explosion of life and colors. All colonies of soft or hard corals are in perfect condition.
The huge shoals of barracuda or trevally cross over banks as benches goldie fish and other reef fish are an ideal pantry. The underwater photographers must use a fisheye or wide angle of at least 20mm to reflect perfectly the size of coral colonies. Underwater bottoms are often located around 30 meters deep. The most beautiful drop off we have photographed was on the bank in the south of Sanganeb at 40 meters. The dive time is quite limited but worth the effort.
The best images were all made during the first dive of the day around 7:30 am. Coral reefs are often oriented north-south. The bakns are fully exposed during the morning. If I had to keep an image of this photo trip is undoubtedly the quietness of the dive sites, the density and diversity of animal species we observed and photographed. We are fortunate to never have strong currents. We had plenty of time to check the lights, compose and shoot. It had been years since I had not experienced such conditions for the photo sessions.

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.
