Los Islotes, The Sea Lion Colony at Espiritu Santo Island, La Paz, Mexico receives more visitors than any other island in the Sea of Cortez. The Sea Lions appear to have become accustomed to human interaction and high levels of boat trafﬁc with few ill effects.
Award winning photographer and Film maker Luke Inman decided to create a book about Los Islotes. A genuine labour of love, ‘Los Islotes’ is his ﬁrst book. From his experiences gained through producing permanent images of wildlife and nature, his involvement in the promotion of our serious relationship and connection to all living things becomes increasingly vital.
“Many of us have simply become detached from any direct personal participation in our ecosystem. Others have little desire or emotional involvement in showing a willingness to appreciate or nurture our natural resources,” says Luke.
Producing lasting images and encounters with Sea Lions, Luke cherishes the notion that much needed awareness and continued respect may contribute to preserving our precious natural world. Luke regularly holds Photographic workshops and expeditions at Los Islotes; for more information, visit www.lukeinman.com.
His passion for taking pictures has led to proliﬁc work with subject matter as diverse as (golﬁng legend) Gary Player to Filming dramatic images deep underwater capturing archaeological locations around the world. His direct personal participation in capturing spectacular images of our natural world has also led to him giving presentations both in Spanish and English – including commentary on TV and cinema.
