Underwater photography is at its best in Reef, a captivating photographic excursion through some of the most stunning and diverse reefs populating the world’s expansive oceans. Utilizing the incalculable talents of ScubaZoo’s specialized photography team, reefs and sea life that are rarely seen by the average individual can now be viewed in all their rich, multihued glory. This impressive array of rare, beautiful sea creatures, and their breathtaking homes, has been captured photographically with a level of artistry that makes the pages of Reef nearly ripple with the life of the tides.

While the breathtaking, undeniably unique images lining the 360 pages of Reef are more than enough to captivate readers of all ages for hours, ScubaZoo also masters the art of educating readers on the endlessly diverse subjects spotting the pages. Regardless of brevity or detail in context, nearly all photographic subjects—person, place, creature—are identified; if available, further interesting facts and information are skillfully included. ScubaZoo’s spectacular oceanic explorations and educational endeavors culminate into a truly mesmerizing photography book.

The island of Borneo is home to ScubaZoo’s talented contributing photographers; they have dedicated their lifestyles and skills to the salvation of the world’s reefs. The ScubaZoo team earned the 2009 International Reading Association Young Adults’ Choice Award for the highly acclaimed Reef. Much in the style of National Geographic’s preferred pictorial and article layouts, Reef allows the wondrous beauty of its remarkable images to be the overwhelming focus of each page, successfully enchanting readers. Reef is a treasure from the deep.
