    Description

    Hi, my name is Aleksandra. My husband and I looking for help with a very exciting project on a small island Inis Mór on the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland. The island of Inis Mór (Inishmore) meaning the big island and is one of three Aran Islands. This is a place of natural beauty with a unique landscape, small population, surrounded by Atlantic Ocean. The Island itself has the true feel of an isolated fishing village. The locals speak the Irish Gaelic language among themselves — but they happily speak English for their visitors. Here on the island is a simple life with only one shop, far from the stress of big cities. We love it!

    We are looking for an enthusiastic and creative scuba underwater photographer, ready to join us for our Aran Islands Underwater Photography Project in remote Irish island of Inishmore on the Atlantic Ocean. Underwater photography has the power to show people who have never experienced the marine environment for themselves the wonders of that amazing world and helps educate people on the value of conserving it for future generations. Because most people do not get under the water, we felt it is important to show them beauty of underwater Aran Islands. Towards the end of this Project, we will share these photos with local community and tourist through a exhibition. This photography Project is just for conservation and educational purpose.
