Tales of the Unexpected

Dutchman Daan Verhoeven is one of the best-known underwater photographers in the freediving community. An overt simplicity and flair for the dramatic are his hallmarks and combine to make his works some of the most iconic images of the sport of freediving you will ever see. For VB 2015, Daan has teamed up with Freedive-Earth to bring you some of his, and our, favourite images from recent years. Expect the unexpected...! All images are the copyright of Daan Verhoeven.
