  1. Trip Report: Egypt & The Red Sea Aggressor Photo Expedition The last time I saw the Egyptian Pyramids was 18 years ago. A lot has changed, and a lot hasn’t, having already all ready lasted 5,000 years. One of the things that was new is the lack of tourists, mostly due to misplaced fear. Fear of different cultures, and fear of the unknown. Some is founded on media hype, and some is due to mistrust, but most of it is misplaced. Divers, however, are a strange breed. When somebody yells “shark”, most people run away, but divers say “Where?” and jump in the water. Underwater photographers are even worse. They’re experienced divers who want to take shots of the most unusual animals and situations. They may be apprehensive and careful - that’s a good thing - but never so scared that they miss a great opportunity. Our Optical Ocean Sales Photo Expedition was for two weeks; Feb. 22 to March 7th, 2016. Twenty people had signed up, but as usual we had a few drop out due to work conflicts or health reasons, and a few join in. Several dropped out, however, because they were afraid of the political situation or for their safety. And I’ve had several inquiries since we’ve been back asking if we had problems, or if the Egyptian people were hostile to us. We all found that the answer was quite the opposite. We had a great time. We felt quite safe. People were extremely warm and friendly, just as they were on my last trip to Egypt, 18 years ago. Some things in Egypt, like the Pyramids, don’t change. It’s all a matter of perspective. We started out our land tour in crazy, raucous Cairo (“why use your turn signal, when you can use your horn?”). This is a terribly over crowded city, with heavy, 24/7 traffic. Cairo is the very definition of urban sprawl with 24 million people. It now surrounds the Giza plateau, which was once well out into the desert.... Continued Flickr albums: (all photos with a Nikon D800) Diving Cairo & Giza Luxor
  2. Here are a few of the better pics from my recent liveaboard trip on the Red Sea Aggressor. I learned a LOT as I practiced, and I can't wait for the next trip, so that I can learn even more! -Basil Egypt Red Sea (9 of 22) by Basil Kiwan, on Flickr Scorpionfish - he was really well concealed! Egypt Red Sea (14 of 22) by Basil Kiwan, on Flickr I would love it if someone could tell me what this fish is. I assume it is some type of triggerfish?? Egypt Red Sea (7 of 22) by Basil Kiwan, on Flickr Ehrenberg's Snapper schooling with some Goatfish Egypt Red Sea (8 of 22) by Basil Kiwan, on Flickr Blue Spotted Stingray Egypt Red Sea (10 of 22) by Basil Kiwan, on Flickr I would also really like to know what this guy is? He is awfully cute, is he a baby grouper??? Here is the full album on Flickr https://flic.kr/s/aHskizroyC
  3. Hi Friends I just returned from my dive trip on the Red Sea in Egypt. I have not yet edited all the photos, but I did pull together a short video of the diving. Feedback always appreciated, here is the YouTube link (can't figure out how to do an embed): https://youtu.be/VxVPQ9sQGVE Many thanks, Basil
  4. Last week I was scuba diving in Egypt (Hurgada). I normally dive in the Netherlands, so diving in the crystal clear waters and making photo's was already really great. Please let me know which you like & dislike and feel free to give any tips on how to improve my photography skills further. All photo's are taken with my RX100II in a nauticam housing with one YS-01. I didn't use my UCL-165 macro lens. All photos are shot in RAW. The full album is here: https://flic.kr/s/aHska9i3rF 1. DSC04361 by Bram de Roos, on Flickr 2. DSC04425 by Bram de Roos, on Flickr 3.

  5. I wanted to share some of my shots from my last red sea trip this summer. I started photography in 2012 because I was absolutely fascinated by the stunning underwater shots I discovered on uwphotographyguide.com. Unfortunately i did not have much time to take underwater shots the previous years because I had hardly time to go diving but I tried to practice a lot with my cam whenever I had some spare time. Shots taken with a Sony A65 and Tamron 60/2, Sigma 10/2.8 or Tamron 17-50/2.8@17mm in an Ikelite housing with one DS-161 and one DS-125. Critics much appreciated
  6. I’m considering going on a last minute package holiday to Hurgada in Egypt. I have mainly done my diving in Malaysa (Sipadan), most places in the Philippines and Lembeh. Did also Similan Islands in Thailand, but never been so disappointed regarding things to see and number of divers. So put in another way if Egypt is on same level as Thailand I’m in doubt about going – just to give an indication of what I want. But the main purpose is to check out new diving gear and my new Panasonic GX1 with a Nauticam housing. I know its possible to go for 2-3 days liveaboard tirps also, any been on this trips? So how is it at this time of the year in Red Sea? Any thoughts and advice are welcome. regards vaga
