My greatest passion has always been the water!! in all forms – Swim, dive, fish, play, meditate and work.

I was born in 1974, in Israel. Presently, I live in Australia where I teach freediving and share a life with Ally- my beautiful wife.

I started taking photos a few years ago, and never stopped since…

I try to combine all of my skills into my work in FreeDiving and photography – I find that breathing, water, nature and a camera are a great combination.
On this site I present some of my favourite work from the past few years.
The photos were taken while traveling to some of the most beautiful locations I have ever visited and aim to capture the beauty of life and nature.
Some of the images presented here are a part of an exhibition with the title “water”.

My Images have been published on many dive magazines and have won photography competitions.

I hope you enjoy my work.

I am represented by Diimex Media.
