All photos taken underwater holding my breath -- free diving-- no scuba!
The subjects will come very close without scuba equipment.
I graduated from Odessa, Ukraine with a degree in Marine science. I lived and studied in Poland and Germany before I moved to Anchorage, Alaska where I am teaching Reiki, Yoga, and do language interpreting in Russian, German and Polish.
During the past few years, our family started spending more time in Maui where I fell in love with the Big Blue, free diving (or apnea diving on one breath) and underwater photography.
What started as a hobby, continues to grow into something greater each time I dive into this other universe - the Ocean.
I am very happy to share my passion and love of the ocean’s beauty, to open a small window for those who have never experienced that other BLUE WORLD, and maybe give them some motivation and inspiration to explore it.
