Clown Fish in Raja Ampat: Underwater Photo Gallery

Raja Ampat is full of clown fish. Technically, it's full of all sorts of fish, but I think we saw at least one anemone fish on every dive during twelve days of exploring Raja Ampat with the Seven Seas.

Some underwater photographers might have grown bored of photographing clown fish, but even after shooting them for so many years I'm still trying to create the perfect clown fish photo.

One of my favorites is the shot that Apple used as the wallpaper for one of the early iPhones - really love the lighting, the color of the anemone, and the contrast of the orange clown fish against that green background.

During our Raja Ampat trip, we were lucky to come across some really beautiful anemones with cooperative clown fish living inside - an opportunity to try to capture the perfect clown fish photo. Two photos from this trip stand out in my mind as among the best I've ever shot, can you guess which ones they might be? 🙂

Check out the gallery below to see the photo highlights, or see the all the photo galleries from our Raja Ampat liveaboard dive trip - from scuba diving, to aerial photos, to freediving, to the incredible wildlife and local people living in this amazing place. You can also see galleries from other Seven Seas liveaboard dive trips - my absolute favorite way to explore the awesome natural beauty and unique cultures of Indonesia.
