  Macro Subjects. Small is big!

Being in the heart of the coral triangle presents numerous subjects for macro photography. There is always something beautiful, unique and interesting to shoot, all you have to do is wait, move slowly and be part of the reef.

We put value in respecting the reef, no touching, avoid harrassing and giving subjects a break.

The subject and protecting the reef is more important than the picture you can take.
