Aloha one and all,

Happy New Year!

I’m Gone (at least for a little while!)

Just checking in from Guayaquil, Ecuador as I am on my way to the Galapagos to teach photography for Lindblad Expeditions. I will be in the Galapagos until the end of January, then back here in Tucson in early February, 2012.

Thanks for the continued support and interest in my work, look for new images and stories along the way!

Me ke aloha,

- Michael

Michael S. Nolan is an award-winning photographer who specializes in intimate portraits of marine animals. He has traveled the oceans of the world in search of what he believes are the world’s most magnificent beings. Since 1990 all of his underwater images have been created while free-diving, without the aid of bulky Scuba equipment. As a result, he believes his encounters with these magnificent ocean creatures are much more personal and intimate. His photography has appeared in thousands of newspapers, magazines, calendars, and books in over 48 countries worldwide.

I am so often out in the field shooting in VERY remote places that it will be difficult for me to keep up with comments…please excuse my tardiness in advance!
