Eilat Red Sea ShootOut 2013 Lecture

Eilat LectureThis October we had visited the town of Eilat in blossoming Israel during the Eilat Red Sea ShootOut 2013. Thank you all who had attended Viktor’s lecture, we were happy to be there with you and to share our experience.

We were impressed with the high level of Israeli underwater photography, and it’s definitely a feather in David Pilosof’s cap: all this is possible only due to his decades-long activity.

Thank you Pilo and looking forward to seeing you next year!

Whale Petrovich

Whale PetrovichDuring our expedition to White sea, where we did a surprising discovery, Viktor made a shot of a 20 year old white whale named Petrovich. The beluga basked in the spring sunshine and was happy about spring coming.

The photo of whale Petrovich became popular; image with some info on white whales was published in National Geographic Russia Magazine (June 2013) and won the Best Edit Award from the National Geographic Headquarters! Congrats Viktor!
