Meet with - Visarute Angkatavanich Photographer

Meet with

Visarute Angkatavanich is the man behind the beautiful Siamese fighting fish picture popular on the iPhone6. A few years ago, the Bangkok-based photographer started selling his work through micro-stock sites, and so went in search of some interesting subjects to populate his gallery and generate some sales. Interestingly, he found what he was looking for in his own house: his pet fish.
Ever since he was a little boy, Angkatavanich has owned different kinds of fish - everything from goldfish, to guppies, to Siamese fighting fish - and he quickly realized that they make the perfect subjects. “I found that nowadays there are so many different kinds of fish that come in unique shapes, colors and patterns. I am fascinated by them, and so I started taking photos.”
He takes his photos most often by setting up his strobe lighting directly above the fish tank. His trick is to clean the tank and filter the water as clearly as possible.
The final shots make the fish look as if they are floating in mid-air, rather than swimming around inside the confines of a fish tank.
