"My greatest passion has always been the water in all its forms! - Swim, dive, fish, play, meditation and work.
I was born in 1974, in Israel. Presently, I live in Australia where I teach freediving and share a life with Ally- my beautiful wife.
I have been a world class free diver and have held the world record for the deepest free dive without fins (CNF- Constant weight without fins) in 2001 and many national records in Israel between1998-2006.
I have taught Scuba diving for a few years but was always drawn to the silence and the tranquility which derives from freediving and so have stopped teaching Scuba and have only taught freediving since.
I have certified well over 2000 students and am the principal instructor for Apnea International.
In 1998 I have completed hydrotherapy studies and this is where I first heard of Aquatic Bodywork. It came naturally to me and I have decided to pursue this path. I have worked as a hydro therapist in hospitals for a couple of years while completing my Watsu path. I have met Alexander George while doing a Waterdance course and realised that underwater work resonates with me in a profound way. I invested the next few years in completing my Healing Dance path and was awarded teaching status by Alexander.
I started taking photos a few years ago, and never stopped since. I try to combine all of my skills into my work in FreeDiving and photography - I find that breathing, water, nature and a camera are a great combination. On this website I present some of my favorite work from the past few years: www.erezbeatus.com
The photos were taken while traveling to some of the most beautiful locations I have ever visited and aim to capture the beauty of life and nature. Some of the images presented there are a part of an exhibition with the title "water". My Images have been published on many dive magazines and have won photography competitions. I am represented by Diimex Media. I hope you enjoy my work."
