Essential Coral Reef Fishes & Invertebrates Guide

Michael AW with Sara Baggott

“Particularly touching is the ‘In plain truth’ section at the very front of the book, which is almost like a love letter to the sea. This jam-packed book does not just cover fish. Invertebrates of all kinds are also given the ‘Aw’ treatment.”
Jane Morgan & Gill MacDonald

From the very first page of an “Essential Guide to Coral Reef Fishes & Invertebrates”, Michael Aw’s love, passion and almost reverence for the sea and its inhabitants shine out. Particularly touching is the ‘In plain truth’ section at the very front of the book which is almost like a love letter to the sea, while still being interesting and useful. As Michael himself points out, there have been many other marine id books published, so what is special about this one? Well, several things actually. Here there are no dry, scientific lists of the wonderful and exotic creatures who live out their lives on a coral reef. Instead, in the fish category each family is addressed with a general description of how to identify the group, what they look like and how to spot them. This is followed by a ‘domain & diet’ paragraph explaining where they can be found and what and sometimes more importantly how they eat, all really helpful information to enable the diver to better understand what he/she is looking at.

An Essential Guide to Digital Underwater Photography plus An Advanced Essential Guide to Digital Underwater Photography

Set of two “How-to Guide”

For aspiring underwater photographers the road to success is littered with obstacles.  Surfacing from a promising dive, we are faced with photographs of a blurred buddy, a fish giving us the arse or a blast of backscatter sneering back at us. Despite the desire to capture the magical moments we are privy to each time we submerge ourselves in the ocean, for most, underwater photography is nothing but a cruel joke.

That is until Michael Aw and Mathieu Meur came together to reveal the secrets of their success in producing this complete how-to guide to underwater digital photography. The guide includes well thought-out modules, tutorials, tips and hints on topics such as exposure, light manipulation, shooting techniques, macro and wide-angle imagery, colour correction, file management and most importantly what to do in that moment of terror when water gurgles into your camera!

Advanced techniques Learning with the Masters contributed by Stephen Frink, David Doubilet, Doug Perrine and Alex Mustard
“A well-structured, comprehensive work, lavishly supported with explanatory diagrams and magnificent images the, the ‘Essential and Advanced Guide To Digital Underwater Photography’ will undoubtedly prove to be as much an educational tool for novices as it will a reference work for those with greater proficiency in underwater image making.”  – David Strike Editor of NEKTON

Underwater Jungles – Sarawak

Michael AW

A journey through this heartland of biodiversity reveals that Sarawak has been twice blessed; once with its verdant jungles clambering with head hunters and orangutans and again with its secret underwater gardens shrouded in the mist of the Borneo Sea.

Created to enlighten the inhabitants of Sarawak of the beauty and riches of their seas in the hope that they may preserve it, this luxuriant book explores the underwater jungles, spirits and enigmas of the coral reefs of Miri.

Meandering through this flamboyant wonderland Michael Aw thrills the senses with his images of smiling fang blennies, underwater harps, bright red forests, curtains of fish, life beneath an oil rig, orange jelly nudibranchs and armed with HMI and black lights he even takes you for a boogie through a jungle disco and the ineffable beauty of fluorescent corals with their magical greens, blues, oranges and purples.

“The coral reefs of Miri, Sarawak, are a natural treasure for Sarawak, in fact they are a national treasure for all of Malaysia.  These reefs are among the best and healthiest in the whole country of Malaysia.” Douglas Fenner, Ph.D.     Australian Institute of Marine Science

METAMORPHOSEA – A 24 Hour Sojourn on the Great Barrier Reef

On 16 July 1995 on the Great Barrier Reef’s ‘Temple of Doom’ bommie, five divers boldly went where none had gone before, embarking on an adventure that would push them to the limits. They would stay in liquid space longer than any other terrestrial being in history, using oxygen enriched air to submerge themselves for 24 hours.

Their aim; to unravel the mystery that is a reef, to show the jigsaw pieces fitted together by a camera lense with its ability to capture the beauty, movement, life and death that thrive in this chaos of complexity.

The 180 images that move from the silhouettes that sprout at dusk to the liquid blackness of night and the intensity of life in the blue spectrum as it is filled with light, create a bigger picture that can only offer a glimpse of the extraordinary closeness to the life on the reef felt by these photographers during their sojourn.

BONUS: The special photo documentary section reveals what it takes to be an underwater Indiana Jones amongst the relentless activity of the “Temple of Doom.’

Tropical Reef Fishes & Tropical Reef Life

Set of two

With its compact size this is the perfect ‘getting to know’ book on reef fishes for nature lovers, snorkellers, students and divers. The three colour-coded segments separate the free swimming fish from the benthic dwellers and those that hide in the nooks and crannies in between.

Free from academic jargon the guide contains concise, informative descriptions on the domain, eating habits and even the lucid secrets behind the sex lives of fish as we jump into bed with them! Identification is made straightforward with more than 500 sharp pictures accompanied by a special how-to-shoot guide for photographers.

This is not only an in-depth marine awareness and identification book but is a comedy, tragedy and drama all rolled into one. Unlike other mind numbing marine reference books, this discovery guide puts life on the reef into human terms. Here corals become communist foul mouths, sea cucumbers are turned into hovering vacuums, sea stars are the ultimate Spiderman and sex life with a sponge is depicted as a hot and steamy night with a pin cushion.

With more than 500 pictures this book is not only informative but is fun to read as it probes into the lifestyle, bizarre sex lives and habitats of life on the reef.

“Charles Darwin meets Melrose Place! A reference guide combining skillful measures of scientific observation with entertaining fact.” David Strike, Editor of Nekton.
