Underwater photographer Alexander Semenov is chief of the Diving Team at Moscow State University's White Sea Biological Station, a remote research facility in the far northwest of Russia. He specializes in the study of marine invertebrates, is accustomed to diving in cold and dark northern waters, and after years of practice with underwater cameras and lighting, is now producing truly remarkable images of some of the world's least known creatures.
Alex's photographs have been seen on the Discovery Channel, BBC, National Geographic, Science News, and elsewhere. Alex’s current major project is the "Aquatilis Expedition", with an international team of divers, scientists, sailors, photographers and videographers on a proposed three-year-long, 30,000-nautical-mile sea trek to find new species and photograph sea creatures as never before. “Aquatilis" plans to set sail in late 2015.
