  1. A video from my November trip to Thailand. Most of the clips are from Richelieu Rock. Best watched in 4k. Hope you enjoy and I'm always looking for constructive criticism. Cheers
  2. Hi there, Video on a mixed diving trip (half dive center - half Liveaboard) in Thailand in March 2022. First we head towards the region of Krabi and Koh Lanta in the south, diving in Koh Haa, the archipelago is pretty, few divers, visi 25 meters.Then back to Phuket, some very good sites: Racha Noi, Racha Yai, King Cruiser and Shark Point : to be transparent, the visi is very random on King Cruiser (7 meters) or Shark Point (15 meters) Finally a "Similans and Surin" liveaboard, for this part I don't have too many words...however, what impressed me the most were the diversity of the coral, the colors, the underwater landscapes, hunting scenes and Richelieu Rock. Shot with 1DX MARKII / Housing Nauticam / Lens SIgma Art 20mm / no Additional lights Have a good week. Olive
  3. Did a weekend trip to Koh Chang recently, my first time doing any diving around Koh Chang. Have to say I was positively surprised, both by the wreck and other dive sites! This area is seeing increased popularity amongst Thai divers during the pandemic. Underwater setup; Panasonic GH5 // Metabones Speedbooster Ultra EF to MFT // Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 // Keldan Spectrum SF-2 red filter // Ikelite Housing
  4. Had an epic trip to the South of Phuket aboard the Deep Andaman Queen, my favorite liveaboard in Thailand!
  5. Thailand is slowly opening up again to quarantine free international tourism, with citizens from 10 nations (incl UK, US & China) being welcomed from November 1st. Without a doubt, one of the highlights of scuba diving Thailand is whale sharks! In this article I provide a few tips on increasing the likelihood of having your own special encounter. Enjoy! https://www.aquatic-images.com/post/best-place-to-see-whale-sharks-in-thailand-a-guide-to-scuba-diving-koh-tao

  7. Similans National Marine Park is home to some of the most famous dive sites in Thailand. The park is open from October through to May each year, with the monsoon winds keeping it closed for diving the rest of the year. This short promotional video contains footage from 3 trips during the 2020/21 season onboard the MV Deep Andaman Queen, one of the premiere liveaboards in Thailand.
  8. Making good use of all the tools you have available to capture underwater video is very important, and I've come up with a list of 5 reasons why foreground elements is so essential to use for underwater videography. These are tips that can be utilized almost anywhere and it's a great set of ideas to add to your existing shot types. I hope you enjoy them
  9. I just released this video where I cover 5 tips that I feel can greatly benefit underwater videographers, regardless if you're a beginner or have some experience. Hope you like it!
  10. Hello, This is my first underwater photography. I have a new year trip with "Deep Andaman Queen Liveaboard" We travelled to Richelieu Rock , Koh Tachai , Koh Bon And Similan island for 4 days 14 dives. Please don't hesitate to advise. I will really appreciate. My gears: Camera : A7RIII + Metabones V + 8-15 fisheye Housing : Nauticam NA-a7RIII + 140 mm fisheye dome Strobes : Sea&Sea YS-D3 x 2 Thanks
  11. Hi Divers Shot this short promo video for a liveaboard company in the Similans a little while back. Unfortunately no sharks or big rays but still a lovely trip with great conditions. What do you think of the video? Does it make you want to go diving? Thanks for checking it out!
  12. I had the good fortune of doing multiple trips this past season to the Similans on-board various liveaboards and decided to make a short video, highlighting parts of the trips, how to go there and what you might expect to see. I also did a weeks trip to Myanmar, thinking of making a similar video for diving there. Would it be of any interest? Thanks
  13. At night, the creatures of the Deep behave differently. The black atmosphere is broken by the rays of lights which reveal the amazing colors of life. Night Dive, Similan Islands, Thaïland
  14. Many dive shops (outside Thailand) criticize Koh Tao, largely I've found due to competition. Koh Tao is not the most challenging diving, which is why it is a nearly perfect place to teach diving - you get great sealife, in warm water, without strong currents that would discourage many would-be divers. That is why many of the most prolific dive shops (in terms of certifications issued) are on Koh Tao, and some among the highest award winners in quality of instruction as well (there are also bad with the good, so do your research). There is much to photograph in the nearby waters, and many come to experience whale sharks, which seem to be more consistent there than in other places where I have seen them (Honduras, Philippines....).
  15. Here is my latest video "Diving in Andaman Sea" from our last trip to Thailand and Myanmar in April. https://youtu.be/vJ4-l2nS7QQ All underwater footage and some above water footage are filmed with Sony A7Rii. I also used iPhone X for some above water footage, and Mavic Pro - for drone footage. I will greatly appreciate any constructive criticism. Many thanks

  17. Hello everyone, I would like to share with you some of my underwater photos, I just started my underwater photography journey, at the moment I'm in Koh Tao, Thailand doing my dive master and than IDC. I have a lot time for fun diving and to play with my camera. I would like to say big thank you to Tim and Shark Business for great equipment I bought off them. https://www.facebook.com/dive4lifee
  18. Hello all! I am searching for a destination that has crystal clear water beaches. I'm planning to do a set of underwater photoshoots, and need some beautiful scenery, but most importantly, very clear water with a good vertical and horizontal visibility (sample photo). I've tried in Bali, but the beaches there disappointed. Due to the high activity the water churned up stuff from below so the water was murky, pretty much all the time. It was impossible to get some good shots. I've seen some beautiful footage from the Bahamas - water appears to be very clear with amazing visibility. Unfortunately, I can't find any reasonably priced tickets, so Bahamas is not an option for me. I've been looking at Cape Verde (n/a) the Azores (n/a) Jamaica (Negril) Dominican Republic (n/a) Thailand (Krabi) Canary Islands (Fuerteventura, Tenerife, Gran Canaria) Mexico (Cancun) Any other suggestions are much welcomed! Do you have any recommendations for me based on these criteria? Maybe I'm looking at the wrong locations, for all I know? I am not a diver, I have never even gone snorkeling, so I do not plan to go to deep depths, just enough to get good shots of the model. Likes: crystal clear water, beautiful photgenic beaches, jungles, beautiful scenery, lush green forests.
  19. I will have shoulder surgery in early January and will be out of work for many months I am looking for a place to recuperate once I can get on a plane. As healing progresses I may as well be near a dive destination. I am told Thailand is inexpensive with good diving, but would recommend any details about there or anywhere else that is cheap, because I won't have much of an income for a while. Thanks so much
  20. Hey there, Some really nice video's posted in here and some good suggestions too, so figured I'd give it a go. Just put together a little vid of my best clips from Koh Tao this year. More for my family/friends instead of bombarding facebook with screenshots of all the critters I saw. I only started filming properly in January, so I've still got a lot to learn, but feel free to check it out and critique. I doubt I'll do another version just yet anyway, as I said, it's only for personal use and I had to steal work computers to edit! Hope ya enjoy..!
  21. Fin Free Thailand has compiled a list (with compliance checks) called the Blue List, where Thai hotels/resorts have signed up to not serve shark fin in any of their restaurants. For those who travel to Thailand, please support these hotels and tell them why: Here is the present list: Anantara Bangkok Rajprasong Anantara Bangkok Riverside Anantara Bangkok Sathorn Anantara Golden Triangle Anantara Hua Hin Anantara Koh Samui Anantara Koh Phangan Anantara Phuket Anantara Si Kao Banyan Tree Bangkok Banyan Tree Phuket Banyan Tree Samui Evason Hua Hin Hotel De la Paix Hua Hin JW Marriott Phuket The Peninsula Bangkok Shangri-La Bangkok Shangri-La Chiang Mai Six Senses Hua Hin Six Senses Samui Six Senses Yao Noi Soneva Kiri Koh Kood Trisara Luxury Resort Phuket
  22. Hanging with the giant manta rays of Thailand's Koh Bon, Hin Daeng and Richelieu Rock. Huge thanks to Solidtrax for the music, "Are We Dreaming". Find them at http://soundcloud.com/solidtrax and https://twitter.com/Solidtrax As always, it looks best at 720p HD in a big window or full screen. All feedback welcome!

  23. I decided to release my 116-minute documentary about the marine life of Thailand and Burma in its entirety on YouTube. This was a real labour of love for me, and represents a pretty big chunk of my life, so I thought I'd give it its own thread rather than tacking it to the end of my thread about the series. I hope that's OK. Feel free to share and embed it anywhere. It looks best at 720p, and there are a number of closed caption options under the CC button including the names of all the species and dive sites. Enjoy! [youtubehd]8ncUVddkK3Q[/youtubehd]
  24. Hi there, I might be lucky enough to relocate in Bangkok, and of course I'm thinking about the diving opportunities over there. I'm writing to seek for recommendations of the closest dive spots to Bangkok, meaning the ones on which you can go just for a week-end (or even a day trip), without taking a plane (with a plane I definetely know where to go ). I'm wondering whether I could get good 'regular/cheap' diving there. So I've heard that Pattaya and Koh Samet would be close. 1/ Are there other places you would recommend? I've also heard that Pattaya/Koh Samet were "not that nice" for diving, and I'd like to understand what it means, what's the quality of the diving there. For me good dive sites are those with lots of fauna (and diversity of fauna), as well as health of reefs. I imagine that Pattaya/Koh Samet are less good that Phuket, Sipadan & other diving meccas... 2/ but what do you get there? What sort of animals? How does it compare to, let's say, the french/italian Mediterranean cost (for those who have practiced them), or with the Red Sea? If some of you have pictures/videos taken in Pattaya/Koh Samet I'd be very interested in viewing those. Thanks in advance for your advise!! cheers Nicolas
