Bangkok based freelance photographer Visarute Angkatavanich always had a passion for exotic fish species and by following his passion of portraying these beautiful creatures, he stumbled into a very specific niche and became the world’s best known Siamese fighting fish photographer. Siamese Fighting fish, usually referred to as Betta fish, is a type of fish that is popular as an aquarium fish. His work is nothing short of stunning, he captures the movements of the fish while swimming in clear water and the lighting is so incredible that it seems like the fish are floating in the air.
Are you wondering if these images have been manipulated on photoshop? Well, the artists himself says he is not very fond of intense photo editing “I like realistic images, so the fish you see are their actual colors. Retouching is not about correcting mistakes but perfecting the images.” says the photographer. Fine art prints of these stunning images can be found at Le Lanta Fine Art Gallery.
