For those who are not familiar with my work at www.aquatic-experts.com let me introduce myself. I'm Ivan Mikolji and since 2005 I have been exploring, photographing, and videoing all around the beautiful country of Venezuela.
Since I was a child I have enjoyed taking photographs and painting. I've also had a deep love for the outdoors with a special interest in freshwater fish. All my family and friends think of me as an artist and I definitely agree with them. I think of every image on this site as a work of art, very different to my photo work on aquatic-experts that has more of a scientific reference kick to it.
In 2011, I decided to take photography to the next level. I had been using photography as a documenting utensil and decided to use my artistic expression via my photographs. So, that is one of the reasons I created www.mikolji.com. I think of it as a fusion between nature photography, videography, and art.
One of the reasons that made me open this blog was that I wanted a place where I could share my experiences with other people with the same nature photography interest. As the years have passed, I have met people with common interests in nature photography and video but most of them have their own websites. I will be including some other photographers which don’t have a website and wanted to be part of this project. I will be adding them and their experiences as they send me their material.
I hope you enjoy the images and posts on the blog. Please feel free to post your comments or questions below.
