Photographer of the Week – Ran Mor
By Joseph Tepper, June 21, 2018 @ 04:00 AM (EST)

Being a nomad in 2018 is a bit different than it was in the previous centuries—no camels or caravans. Instead, all underwater photographer Ran Mor needs is his laptop and a plane ticket. Along with his scuba instructor wife Danielle, Ran leads a digital nomadic life by working remotely from some of the best dive destinations in the world, including Greece, Belize, Bonaire, Mexico and Croatia.

Originally from Israel, Ran discovered his passion for the ocean while diving as a young man in the Red Sea. Underwater photography is not only a passion for Ran and his family but also a business: Ran’s brother owns his own underwater imaging retail company and the two often collaborate on gear reviews and guides.

Continuing with the family theme, Ran and his wife currently run Dive and More, a travel company specializing in small group dive travel. In recent years, Ran has led underwater photography workshops in destinations like Cuba, the Philippines, and the Bahamas. He is a frequent user and test diver of Fantasea housing systems
