Bodrum promoted in Japan by world famous Photographer

God knows Bodrum doesn’t need any help getting popularity but it is getting it anyway from renowned Japanese photographer Masakazu Akag. The world famous photographer who is also a private photographer for Japanese Prince Tomohito is in the Aegean town to film Turkey’s beautiful depths along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.

The world famous photographer will take pictures and film with 3-D technique the underwater beauty of the Turkish seas along the coast from Bodrum to Alanya for two weeks. His 3-D photos and filming will be aired on Japanese televisions.

Akagi, 50, and his team previously filmed in Bodrum as well as Kaş and Mersin; “there are unbelievable visuals, but the Japanese people
have no idea about them, our goal is to show these beauties to them” he said.

Last September Akagi was in Turkey on the invite of the Turkish Culture and Tourism Ministry and BOSAV; he dove into a 2,400-year-old shipwreck and also took pictures of the ancient cities of Turgutreis Yassıada, Myndos Port, Datça Knidos, İskender Cape, Fener Cape and Tavşan Cape in Gökova.

He went on 45 dives and spent a total of 12 hours making video while taking nearly 4,000 photos under water. The film aired on Japanese
televisions in four separate episodes and the photos were published in various magazines.

The images help promote Turkey’s underwater beauties as well as contribute to Bodrum’s tourism and he’s hoping his second film will have the
same success.

    The coastline around Bodrum has some perfect conditions for diving and snorkeling. This year it is again very popular with family holidays, due to its great choice of quality all inclusive holiday hotels. Looks like another busy summer!
