Karim Iliya, is a Maui-based underwater and aerial photographer and filmmaker. He lives a nomadic lifestyle, exploring and photographing the world’s diverse and always evolving natural habitats. From the snowy mountaintops to underwater caves Iliya documents and defends the fragile ecosystems of our planet.

In his latest video dubbed Laniakea he explores Hawaii’s beautiful landscape capturing the life of the islands exploring the beach, ocean, jungle, with a focus on surf. Filmed entirely with quadcopter drones.

Laniakea means immeasurable heaven in Hawaiian. It is the name of our local supercluster galaxies, that is home to our galaxy the Milky Way.
