Photo books and popular articles
Travel, writing and photography have become part of our work with the environment. My husband and I began this career by focusing mainly on the sea but ended up covering both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems to cater to several types of travel and nature magazines around the world (e.g. Canadian Geographic, Ocean Realm, Sea Frontiers, Aquaculture Magazine, Aqualife, Freshwater & Marine Aquarium, Aquarium Fish International, Scuba World, Photo Life, Explore and Islands Business). Since 1993, we have authored five coffee-table books and over four hundred popular articles, and we have amassed tens of thousands of pictures. More can be found about these realisations on the website of our society (SEVE).
