Australian Sea Lion face
2012: Our Photographers have been busy this year travelling and photographing much marine life, including fantastic images of Manta Rays, some of the best we've seen. Many fantastic shots from Australia, including fish, corals and islands of the Great Barrier Reef, Sea Lions, Jetty marine life and Seadragons of the Southern Temperate Australian waters, as well as outback Australia. Many conservation issues around the world have also been well documented and our images of Sharks, Rays, Dolphins and Whale species are constantly being updated. Our Photographers from Canada and the USA have also been busy photographing marine environments and wildlife from their part of the world and our Photographers from South Africa are busy capturing images of Great White Sharks predating on Seals as well as many other Shark Species and African Wildlife. Many of our images have been used to help conservation groups portray their message this year, as well as for Wall and Museum Displays, print books, e-books and Calendars. New series of David Messent Calendars and Artique Calendars will be coming out in 2014 including lots of our images inside and on the calendar cover. It is very expensive for our photographers to travel the world and acquire these stunning images and our minimal licensing fees for image use help to offset the expense to our photographers. We look forward to helping you with your projects this year with our stunning collection of images, which in turn helps our photographers to seek out more fantastic images.
