Underwater photographer in Poyakonda

By Alexandra –

Contrary to common opinion, the White Sea (which can be considered a bay of the Barents Sea)is not cold and dead. I’d like to present my colleague and namesake Alexander, whose job and passion is to photograph White Sea creatures. He spends a lot of time in the Moscow Sate U. research station near Poyakonda, right on the arctic circle.

This White Sea jellyfish photo by Alexander Semonov won recent “Wild Nature of Russia” contest by the National Geographic (Russia) magazine

More pictures of Alexander Semenov on his website Clione.ru (English)and in his blog (Russian).

Unfortunately, perhaps one of the country’s and the world’s greatest underwater photography experts profoundly lacks interest in organizing diving tours in exchange for contemptible $$. If you happen to be real hot about immersing yourself into this see with a camera, tell me, and I’ll put you in touch with people in or around Kandalaksha.

  1. Loved the underwater photos! As a former scuba diver, I would have liked to do such a tour. I’ve been diving around the world and the sea life is always fascinating. It’s just a complete other world to explore. I have always been on warm climate dives, but viewed Antarctic photos. Please consider commercial tours as I am sure others would like to see what you are finding.

  2. Talk to Alexandra(alexandragor4@yandex.ru) about commercial underwater tours. She should be able to recommend someone is a good position to help.
