Suunto brings top athletes and sports photographers to the Maldives for photoshoot at Ayada
If you like beautiful underwater photography Maldives should be one of the first names to come.
Suunto, the famed Finnish manufacturer of sports watches and diving computers, is holding a photoshoot for its world-wide advertising campaign on the reefs around Ayada Maldives this week. Although the final advertising will only be seen worldwide later this year, Ayada Maldives has a wide selection of daily photos on its facebook page.
Bringing something special to the campaign, the group includes the famous Scuba Diver Girls from the USA; professional surfer, paddle boarder, free diver and adventurer Fernando Stalla from Mexico; and freedivers Tomoko Fukuda and Katerina Hamsikova from Japan and Ireland respectively. Among the photographers, the names are no less prestigious: George Karbus, based in Ireland and category winner of the Red Bull Illume 2013; Predrag Vuckovic, from Serbia is the official photographer for Red Bull and has extensive underwater photography experience; Justin Lewis, from California is a videographer who has filmed for Body Glove and PADI, and Brad Holland who photographs the Scuba Diver Diver girls.
Situated in the Southern Atolls of the Maldives, the five star Ayada Maldives offers dives to areas that have rarely, if ever, been visited by divers while the clear waters and abundant sea life offer incredible diving. “Ayada Maldives is in Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll in the south of the country, which, because of its outstanding coral reefs, is gaining a reputation as one of the best areas of the country to go diving and snorkeling,” said general manager Zafer Agacan. “You don’t have to go far to find untouched reefs teeming with fish and other wildlife that may never have seen a human before. Even our house reef [the coral reef that surrounds the resort] is a pleasure to dive and snorkel”.
