Tommi Kokkola Photography
Thanks for showing interests to my photography.
I've enjoyed taking photos for a long time but since we moved to Asia 2007 I've put more effort into photography. 2011 I got my first housing for SLR and since then underwater photography has been the main reason to dive for me. I've been traveling extensively in Southeast Asia and I'm diving as often as I can. I'm also a technical diver and sometimes diving with rEVO rebreather. 2016 we moved back to Sweden. Originally I'm from Finland.

I’ve done my best identifying the critters, but I know many common and latin names are likely be wrong. Please do not hesitate to contact me so I can correct the names.
