Our newest Photographer of the Week is Remuna Beca. A wildlife photographer and filmmaker, Remuna is based in South Florida by way of Southern California. Always drawn to the ocean, she worked to get her scuba certification at just 13, and ever since, she has traveled the world to explore as many dive destinations as possible. Ultimately, Remuna fell in love with underwater photography and the power it has to effect positive change for marine ecosystems.
Her underwater work aims to capture the beauty and fragility of the oceans and the incredible diversity of life within. As you can see, her favorite subjects are sharks, and she has traveled all over the globe to photograph them. She wants her pictures to help advocate for shark conservation as beautiful and necessary predators, to dispel misconceptions, and to instill in non-divers a love and fascination for them.
Remuna isn’t one to overlook a good macro subject though. She is now based in South Florida, where she spends much of her time diving with the local sharks off Jupiter, exploring the healthy reef ecosystem in the area, or taking a dip once in a while at the Blue Heron Bridge.
