I am really proud to announce that a six-page article with an explicit set of my underwater photographs from central and northern Aegean,
are published on March issue of the Greek National Geographic magazine. The article, with text written from my soul mate Rabea Iatridou,
is about the rich biodiversity of Aegean Sea and the importance of its preservation.
The last couple of years we made a number of incredible dives in the Aegean waters and discovered habitats and environments with extreme differences
of shape and marine life. In some of those dives I managed to photograph rare species of shrimps, crustaceans, nudibranches, jellyfishes, corals and gorgonians.
This article is of great importance for me not only because it is published on National Georgraphic, a magazine symbol of wild life, geography,
ecology and biology, but because it is about the secrets of Aegean Sea, one of the most historic seas worldwide.
Our attention is to show the beauty of underwater habitats and critters that can be found in Greek waters and raise awareness
of the value of marine biodiversity not as specialists but as dedicated and passionate lovers of the sea and marine world.

I am impressed to the maximum. In my opinion, there is no higher credibility that what you have accomplished, and I suspect one of the reasons you accomplished this is your passionate approch to the subject, both in pictures and words.

That really is the Holy Grail !! :P :) :(

Serious congrratulations to you Nicholas.

Living in the UK we are unlikely to see your article and images.
If it goes web based could you post a link to share, or maybe a pdf?

Nice one you.

Thank you all for your comments!
As soon as I have the pdf file, I will add a link to download it although it is in Greek language and you'll not be able to read the text. At least you'll be able to see the photos and the layout.

Congratulations - do you have a link to the NG Greece website?
