“All these glories have been made possible by Luke, his enthusiasm, his knowledge, and passion for the part of the World he has made home.”
TV Presenter – Steve Backshall
“With his child-like enthusiasm and extraordinary attention to detail, Luke Inman has a way of sharing his perception of the underwater world in a way no other can. He brings out character and charm of the sea lions he photographs in a beautiful and unique way. It is through his story telling, both visually and in text that we are able to see these lovely sea lions in a new light.”

“Spending time at Los Islotes is a time to be cherished. This colony of Sea Lions are inviting and provide moments you remember for a lifetime. Photographing them is very challenging, they move very quickly and come very close. It is dificult to balance all the components of light, exposure and composition and get great photographs. To photograph sea lions you have to understand them. Luke has shared all his photographic experience, sentiment and special connection with these animals in this book. Simply beautiful photographs capturing the beauty of this place and the animals”.

Being in the presence of Sea Lions is one of my most cherished experiences I have ever had in my life and one of the most incredible interactions with wildlife there could possibly be. Each one of them has a distinct personality so each interaction is unique and evokes so many different emotions. As I went through all of the beautiful images of Luke`s majestic book, I immediately became fascinated with it. It takes you to an incredible voyage on the daily lives of these playful animals and with every image you develop a deeper connection, until eventually you find yourself helplessly in love with them. It’s an inspiring collection of timeless images, each one evoking many of the emotions I remember while at the presence of the Sea Lions of Los Islotes, definitely the Jewel of Espiritu Santo.
