About Iyad Suleyman
Iyad Suleyman is an underwater photographer from Ukraine, but he has been based in the United Arab Emirates since 1996.
He began diving in 2008 and at the same time he was amazed with the beauty of seascapes and underwater inhabitants. Short time after he bought his first compact camera and UW photography became his passion. In a little while he switched to D-SLR cameras.
From time to time he travels to different interesting dive destinations, but as he is based in Emirates - almost every week he dives and takes UW pictures in Indian Ocean, UAE coast.
He likes every kind of underwater photography, but especially he is carried away by the macro and super macro photography. He likes to capture small subjects in details to show their hidden beauty and singularity. He is also interested in behaviour shots and often he plans his dives to take pictures showing it.
Most of his UW macro shots he takes with different diopters. During his dives he spend 50% of time experimenting with various lenses, teleconverters and diopters to produce significant results in UW photography.
