Marine Photography Philippines
A new tourism attraction is being promoted by the Department of Tourism. With diverse marine ecosystems containing 800 species of corals, the Philippines can take advantage of the growth in marine photography. "It’s still a small market but it’s growing. We have only a few number of photographers yet, were still working on it," Tourism Secretary Alberto Lim was quoted as saying in a Business Insights report.
The DOT has recently launched its Marine Macro Photography initiative, with the theme "In the Philippines, small things make the big difference." The initiative was aimed at promoting the country as one of the best marine macro photography destinations in Asia.
