Andre’s work is so creative and outside the norm of what most creatives shoot. Its a great perspective and a outstanding addition to our offices. I also appreciate the improved packaging for shipping. The canvas prints in the floating frames are very well done. Bravo.

I love love love my underwater portrait. Andre did a great job and the session was really fun. I had lots of choices in the end and he gave me lots of options for prints and my portfolio. I’ll do it again soon.

Pederson’s Anemone Shrimps have a mutualistic symbiotic relationship with its sea anemone in which it hosts.

These shrimps are dependent on the sea anemone and are rarely found far from them because although they have a shell, the anemone provides protection from predators. In return, the shrimp cleans the anemone removing organism caught in the anemone’s mucus. Therefore, they feed on the tiny organisms and detritus that get caught in the anemones mucus.

The cleaner shrimp also wave their antennae to attract fish to their “cleaning stations”. The cleaner shrimp has a mutulistic relationship with the fish. They remove parasites from stationary fish that are passing by. Not only cleaning externally they also clean inside the mouths and gills of fish and other marine life wishing to be cleaned.

Although the Pederson’s cleaner shrimp have an armored exoskeleton, this does not protect them from the sea anemones sting produced by the nematocysts. The cleaning shrimp has to adapt themselves to their host. This is done by slowly making contact with the tentacles of the anemone. After this process is done repeatedly, the shrimp develops immunity and can move about the anemone unaffected. Similarly, the anemone also no longer notices the presence of the shrimp.
