Blue WOW Videography - Joel Bergsma Owner

I began my adventure in underwater photography in 2009, and began my Blue World of Wonder ("WOW") Videography business in 2018.

I shot the site's underwater videos and photos in the Philippines (Tubbataha, Apo Island, Dauin, Alona, Anilao, Moalboal, Oslob, Malapascua, Verde Island, & Puerto Galera); Palau; Belize; Malaysia (Sipadan); Indonesia (Komodo); Yap; Chuuk; Bonaire and Curacao; the Cayman Islands; the Galapagos Islands; Cozumel, Mexico; the Bunaken National Marine Park in Manado, Indonesia; the Lembeh Strait near the Northeast tip of Manado, Indonesia; and two islands in Fiji (Kadavu Island waters and the Beqa Island and its Lagoon).

I shot the safari videos and photos at the Marataba Game Preserve and Thornybush Game Preserve in South Africa. The African Penguin photos are from the Cape Town area.
The videos and photos from Vietnam and Cambodia were taken primarily at sites along the Mekong River.
The videos and photos from Europe, Peru and that Amazon River, Ecuador, and the Galapagos are designated in the galleries' names.

I hope you enjoy my videos and images.

If you would like to purchase any of them, simply add them to your cart.!
