ArteSub presents a selection of marine wildlife and conservation imagery from the extensive collection of award winning underwater photographer and marine biologist Andre Seale. Through photography, Andre’s main goals are to foster greater public understanding of the marine ecosystems and their inhabitants, and to promote awareness of the current environmental issues that threaten their survival. An avid world traveler and underwater photographer for the past 15 years, Andre has participated in a number of scientific expeditions and underwater photographic shoots in over 20 countries, including remote destinations such as the atolls of Namu, Rongelap and Mili of the Marshall Islands, and national marine parks such as Abrolhos, Fernando de Noronha and St. Peter and St. Paul rocks in Brazil, and Apo Island in the Philippines. Images depict a wide range of subjects, including whales, sharks, tropical coral reefs, fishes, invertebrates, seascapes and environmental issues. All images are carefully catalogued, captioned, and accurately identified to species level when possible. Images at artesub.com are available at high resolution (5400 x 3600 pixels) for licensing and direct top quality printing.
Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Andre Seale is a Brazilian-American who has developed a special relationship with the sea since childhood. His early interest in marine life and science has led him to a Bachelor's degree in Science, double majoring in Marine Science and Biology at the University of Miami. During undergraduate years, Andre quickly acquired his first underwater camera as he was frequently exposed to some of the world's most popular dive sites, including the Florida Keys, Bahamas, Cayman Islands and Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Specializing in Comparative Endocrinology, Andre completed his Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of Hawaii. Conducting research at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology in fish physiology and adaptation, he maintained close contact with diverse aspects of marine science, which were keenly photographed. Andre's academic career brought him to South Korea as a biomedical research scientist, where he also kept documenting the marine environment and joining photographic and research expeditions worldwide. Andre has been actively engaged in protecting coral reefs by periodically volunteering in natural resource assessment surveys and documenting the rich marine fauna of the Marshall Islands. Andre's images have been widely used in conservation campaigns, commercially, and featured in hundreds of publications worldwide. Amongst his international photographic awards is a winning entry at the 2006 Shell Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition and first place entries in the USA National Wildlife Magazine 2008 professional competition and 2009 International Nature Photography competition held by the Italian Association of Nature Photographers.
