Bonaire has a wealth of excellent nature photographers, both professional and amateur. This year, the Bonaire Insider will profile some of these amazing amateur photographers and showcase their work. Our first resident photographer is Ellen Muller.
Ellen moved from the United States to Bonaire in 1980. She didn’t pick up an underwater camera until 2001 when she became instantly hooked on underwater photography. Being able to dive almost daily in Bonaire provides many opportunities to document the amazing diversity of marine life in Bonaire’s waters. Her passion is being able to share with others, through her underwater photography, some of the incredible underwater creatures she is fortunate enough to encounter on a regular basis. Ellen has photographed many unusual, rare and unique creatures and recorded previously unknown behaviors, making an invaluable contribution to our knowledge of the fascinating underwater world.
Occasionally, she will turn her camera topside where she enjoys sharing her passion for photography with her 6-year old granddaughter, Molly.
Ellen is currently using a Canon G16 and Canon housing WP-DC52 with add-on Inon close up lenses UCL 165 & 330. For her topside photography, she employs a Canon SX50.
Ellen publishes a wonderful calendar each year of her exceptional photography. Check out her current calendar!
