Red Sea – Photo Tip How to capture the beauty of dolphins

My wife Anna and I are “into dolphins" if you can put it that way. It started in 2005, when Anna experienced the wisdom of dolphins first-hand.

These magnificent creatures guided my wife Anna (and later me) with their energy into a life of higher love and consciousness, a transforming experience that has lasted to this very day.

We now organize spiritual trips to the dolphins of the Red Sea together. The photos I take are to provide our guests with memories of their physical and emotional encounters with the dolphins.

Underwater photography is a skill on itself. But I noticed that the more relaxed I am, the better the photos turn out. By not focussing on the photography but on the interaction with the dolphins, they allow me to come closer to them. These unique photos I took of dolphins making love are a perfect example of this.

It is a very intimate moment, but the dolphins totally accepted my presence. I really felt at one with the dolphins and the memory still touches me. It was as if they told me; there is no shame in what we are doing, the whole world can watch it.

And by publishing these photos on TRVL with readers in 190 different countries, this is exactly what is happening now.

Dolphins have weaker skeletons than land mammals, as they are supported by water. Their spine is very flexible though, allowing for powerful tail swimming movements. Photo by Godfried Kleinsman
