Welcome to!

This website is a result of many years of photography while scuba diving the coast of Norway. The purpose is to present a glimpse of the wide range of creatures living in Norwegian waters. As the images are taken in situ, during scuba diving, the depth range and choice of locations are limited by my scuba diving education and experience. I am not a professional photographer, scuba diver or biologist. Hence, I rely heavily on my references and a some excellent resources on the net when presenting facts about each species. Please enjoy!
