“Luminous Sea” Donates 50% of Future Profits To The Ocean Foundation

Santa Barbara, CA

"Luminous Sea", the latest underwater photography book in the Sea of Light trilogy, is currently rounding up its crowdfunding campaign on the popular crowdfunding site Indiegogo. The last day that campaign contributors and those interested in the Sea of Light trilogy can pre-order the Luminous Sea book and help the campaign reach its funding goal is July 30, 2014.

Now, in an attempt to help conserve the world's oceans, fifty percent of the future non-crowdfunding profits from "Luminous Sea" will be donated to The Ocean Foundation, an organization that works with donors to grow the financial resources available for marine conservation. In addition, the first 1,000 copies of "Luminous Sea" pre-ordered on Indiegogo will also be signed by Richard Salas, the man responsible for taking the stunning images featured in the books.

"These wonderful creatures have become like family to me," says Salas. "Doing whatever possible to help conserve the natural habitats of these wonderful creatures is something I am very passionate about, so choosing to donate to The Ocean Foundation was a natural choice."

"Luminous Sea" is the third and final book in the Sea of Light trilogy, a three-book series featuring jaw-dropping images of the underwater life along the eastern Pacific Ocean. The 12" x 12" coffee table book features over 150 pages of high-resolution underwater photographs taken in numerous locales along the western coast of North and Central America, from Alaska to the Equator. The Sea of Light trilogy is comprised of three books, "Sea of Light", "Blue Visions" and "Luminous Sea". The first two books in the series featured photography taken in the temperate waters near the Equator. "Luminous Sea", however, features stunning imagery captured off the coasts of the Pacific Northwest.
