The parent humpback whales were always watching over her child. When he was breathing, resting, or swimming ....... A child whale grows up with the deep love of its parents. The sight is very endearing. The mother whale and child were bound together by a very deep trust. KUME Island, Okinawa, JAPAN

My name is Akira Nanjo. I am an underwater photographer who lives in Okinawa Japan. The environment of Okinawa fascinates me, one so blessed by both sea and nature that it demands to be shared with the world.In 2021, I started working as a freelance underwater photographer to seek more encounters in the world's oceans. I want to tell more people about the beauty of the underwater world and the joy of photography.
