Biography: I'm a wildlife, water and landscape photographer based on the west coast of Ireland. I'm focused on wild marine mammals, the ocean, waves, surf photography and beautifully lit coastal sceneries. I try to capture the beauty of nature in its purest aspects. All my underwater images are taken during freediving in natural light in order to make them look as realistic as possible.My work is well recognized around the world and has been exhibited in Washington, London and Japan. My photography has appeared in the pages of Nature's Best, BBC Wildlife magazine, BBC Focus, Nikon Pro, Outdoor Photography and many more. The Shot: Freediving in Ireland can be dark and cold with bad visibility, but you can experience the most spiritual moments in this green harmony. In my image, my girlfriend Kate Hamsikova is freediving with her friend from the ocean, a wild bottlenose dolphin. This special moment shows the extraordinary relationship that can exist between wild ocean creatures and humans. The image was captured while freediving with a Subal housing. The winners of the world's largest action sports photography contest are revealed in Hong Kong. The wait is finally over. The 2013 Red Bull Illume Overall Winner, Top 10 category winners and Top 50 finalists were unveiled at a spectacular ceremony held in Hong Kong on August 29th. German photographer Lorenz Holder was crowned Overall Winner for his remarkable shot of a snowboarder next to a giant satellite dish.

He also won the Expe - Wednesday 2nd May 2012 (1 Picture)
