About Ivan Bakardjiev

Ivan Bakardjiev began freediving at the age of 6 and immediately fell in love with the underwater world. Being a recreational freediver and spearfisher for all of his life, Ivan developed a vast knowledge about the inhabitants of his local Black Sea. When the digital age brought photography closer to the common diver, Ivan gradually started replacing the speargun with a camera. He discovered that his sperfishing skills allow him to get closer to his subject than any SCUBA diver would ever be and continued taking photos only on a single breath. His passion remains with portraying his beloved Black Sea, considered by many as one of the toughest underwater photography environments. Despite being an air traffic lawyer by occupation, Ivan is regarded by his colleague underwater shooters as one of the best underwater photographers in Bulgaria. His work has been featured in numerous local and international magazines like Hawaii Skin Diver, USM, Maxim, Diving BG and Eight Magazine. His photos have been used as book covers and illustrations. Ivan Bakardjiev regularly provides underwater photography classes.
