Breath-taking New Portraits of Siamese Fighting Fish by Visarute Angkatavanich

Visarute Angkatavanich is a Bangkok-based photographer who captures some of the most elegant fish portraits I’ve ever seen. His photographs have already conquered the web. Visarute’s portraits became viral last year and were featured on the biggest news sites. Since then, he’s probably the most famous fish photographer (sounds a bit crazy, heh?).

The photographer’s obsession with Siamese Fighting Fish started after he discovered their beauty while participating in one of the fish shows three years ago in Bangkok. According to the Popular Photography magazine, what fascinates Visarute the most about fishes is the fact that they can move in three dimensions. This allows photographer to play more with the composition and capture shots from a higher number of different angles.

However, Siamese Fighting Fish is different to other species. “I like Siamese Fighting Fish, because they have their own personality and character – they have different colours, shapes, patterns”, explains photographer.

Below is a collection of the most recent Visarute’s shots. Enjoy!
