Hey, Macronesiacs, see some of my more recent videos and a showreel on this page, but don't miss the "Updates" and "Gallery" links above to see a lot more content!

After another extended work-induced hiatus, here is my first frogfish video! I was invited by Atmosphere Resort in Dumaguete, Philippines, to shoot and compose some macro videos for their promotional material. It was a banner year for diversity and abundance of juvenile frogfish, including some wee tiny little froggies. Enjoy and -- as always -- please share widely and invite your friends to visit Macronesia!

Macronesia is back!  After a long break from editing due to a hectic work life, I have finally collected some highlights from my first trip to Lembeh Strait, Indonesia, a magical macro wonderland.  Please enjoy the beauty and diversity, and share it with your friends.

Macronesia:  Island life, up close

Welcome to Macronesia, where we explore rarely seen worlds through the lens of science.  While this site is primarily a showcase for the photographer and biologist Shane Siers, we'll also explore the evolution and ecology of these alien realms and discuss the social, economic and environmental issues threatening their existence -- and the effects that their loss would have on our lives.

Visit Updates to see new posts as they appear.   Galleries include consolidated media content.  Explore About to discover more about Shane and his motivating philosophy for creating this resource.  Answers contains responses to anticipated and frequently asked questions about this site.  Music contains links for the artists that have graciously granted permission for the use of the fruits of their creativity.  If you like Macronesia and don't want to miss new content, go to Follow to explore options for notification.
