March was another wildly critter-filled month here in Lembeh! Among many other things we saw a seahorse wearing a funny hat, an one-eyed shrimp, a reef octopus getting his eyes cleaned and a ghost-pipefish photobombing a coconut octopus. Enjoy!
Here are some highlights from February…check out the cardinal fish – I don’t know how he manages all these eggs…crazy!
This February is all about frogfishes…here’s a short video of some of the common species we usually see while diving the Lembeh Strait – Enjoy!
The year startet very good in Lembeh. With lots of frogfish (especially hairy ones), cephalopods (even flamboyant cuttlefish hatching) and many pretty nudibranchs, January was very productive, Here are a few highlights – enjoy!

The first video of 2016 is all about Syngnathidae. The Syngnathidae are a family of fish which includes the seahorses, the pipefishes, the pipehorses, and the seadragons. The name is derived from Greek, syn, meaning “fused” or “together”, and gnathus, meaning “jaws”.
“Stars of Lembeh” is the last video of the year 2015. See for yourself why Lembeh is so special – Which one is your favorite critter-star?
Are you fascinated by spooky, weird beings? In this video you will see them crawling, writhing, feeding hungrily and lying craftily in wait to ambush prey. Some, like the live headless nudibranch (we named it ‘Ichabod’) will leave you shaking your head in disbelief. Enjoy the show and when you go to bed, don’t forget to leave your night-light on and close the door to your closet, lest these spookiest critters invade your dreams. Enjoy!
It’s fright night in this episode featuring some very spooky critters of the Lembeh Strait – from the stargazer to bobbit worm, and flamboyant cuttlefish to mantis shrimp – which one do you think is the scariest?
I took an underwater photo class with Sascha. Sascha provided some excellent tips and advice on camera settings, lighting, and even on organizing and editing pics in Lightroom. It was very helpful and made the trip even more interesting, giving me a fun mission to improve the quality of my pics while I was there. I don’t have an SLR, but am happy with the results from my Canon S95 and the class was worth every penny!
Sascha packed so much into 2 hours my photography improved instantly.
This could happen when you do a photo course with Sascha. It brought real improvement to my pictures. Thanks a lot for the fun and the lessons learned!
I was particularly grateful to the Lembeh photo-pro Sascha Janson for his patient and tailor-made tuition. I can highly recommend the DSLR course, especially for those who want to get the most from their underwater photography during the trip. Sascha was also able to provide a tailor-made lesson on post-editing which I found invaluable.
Arriving as a complete novice underwater photographer and leaving with some relatively decent photos can only be credited to the technical knowledge of the inhouse photography expert Sascha, as well as the help of guides underwater.
Sascha is a consummate Pro, whether it be with his photography, videography or post-production skills. His wealth of knowledge can help fine-tune enthusiasts from novice level to pro alike. His enthusiasm and passion flow through into his teaching style. I also appreciated his patience and trouble-shooting skills. My photography and knowledge level literally improved overnight after working with Sascha.
Extremely satisfied with the Photo Center service. Finally, we have also made progress in our uw photography with valuable tips from Sascha, who also introduced us to the world of Lightroom.
A few helpful comments by the in-house photo pro Sascha considerably improved my pictures.
The camera pro – Sascha – is really talented and happy to help you out. My wife took a short one-on-one class with him and it made an immediate impact on her photos.
Sascha was very helpful for camera support and gave good hints about software for better images!
