Noam Kortler pratica um dos géneros de fotografia que não estão ao meu alcance, a fotografia subaquática.
Uma especialidade que exige, simultaneamente, o domínio de uma técnica fotográfica própria, o conhecimento de biologia marinha e o controlo absoluto da técnica de mergulho. Suponho que se alguma das três falhar, o resultado possa ser desastroso, fotográfica e/ou fisicamente.
Pelos resultados e pelo reconhecimento que obtém, Noam Kortler estará certamente entre os melhores fotógrafos do género.
Ora vejam !
“Noam Kortler is connected to the sea since he can remember him self. He was born on the coast of the Mediterranean sea of Israel and was diving and surfing whenever he could.
He moved to Eilat, the south popint of israel to the red sea in 1996 to make his dream come true – becoming a diving instructor. However the only job he could find was taking photos underwater of student divers. With no knowledge whatsoever in photography noam started to “play” with the camera when ever he could. One year later Noam started to work as an instructor and put the camera down. In the year 2000 Noam bought his first underwater camera “Nikonos V”.
In the year 2006 Noam started his own dive center “Nemo Divers” in Eilat and bought is first D-SRL camera – Nikon D2x with a Seacam housing. On that year Noam started to win big photo competition around the world and started to go places.
In 2007 Noam displayed his first photo gallery which was the first time ever that someone display the photos underwater and not on a gallery wall – “Treasures of the Sea”
