Hello and thanks for visiting my profile, my name is Linley Bignoux. I am an Australian originally from Melbourne. I was born in Blantyre, on the 21/11/1975. I am based in Mauritius.
I am an English teacher by profession and photography, scuba diving geek and marine science fanatic when I am not teaching.
Basically, I photograph and write primarily about many fundamental aspects of Marine Sciences: Marine Biology, Marine Conservation Biology, Marine Ecology and Oceanography, these interests stem from my year’s scuba diving professionally and as a scuba diver for over 14 years discovering the underwater world and the natural environment on land in general as try to understand in the inner workings of nature.
Similarly, I write about the photographic genres of Landscape photography, Photojournalism and Underwater Photography, I have a specific interest in explaining the many aspects of our natural world that we live in via the Environmental Photojournalism photographic genre.
