OceansArt.us offers free photos of all types of scenes in rivers, lakes, coasts and oceans around the world. Photos are large and high quality. If used for other than personal use, a link back is required. Prints and original quality photos can be purchased. Many other themes are available and only one third of our personal inventory is posted. If you don't see what you need, send as a message. Our goals are to advance sustainable use of the oceans through the distribution of these free photos.

While the waters of the Earth are our passion, we also have great interest in animals of all types, and the great work that zoos and aquariums around the world are performing to assist Mother Nature where they can, and to serve as a substitute when necessary.  These institutions educate the public about the beauty and fragility of all these animals and their habitats, while trying their best to remain focused on their mission in the face of adversity.

We also have a fancy for cities around the world, including the infrastructure of roads, bridges, buildings and water and sewer works that make it possible, but we really love to photograph the people in these places.  As you look at the people in the cities, it is easy to wonder how you would fit in if your job or spouse had to relocate, say to Rome or Ambato.  How would you live, what would you do?

We have a strong affinity for the fishing people of the world, for that is our heritage.  OceansArt.us, has one of the most extensive libraries of wholly owned fisheries images available anywhere. Whether it is a village in Brazil, Ecuador, Peru or the USA, if there is a fishing harbor (or beach), we have photos or are waiting a chance to visit and capture its essence, to share with the  world. If we don't have it up, it may well be sitting in a photo album, a slide, or on a hard drive, awaiting its turn to join its colleagues.(test)
