About Fish Bowl Diaries


Fish Bowl Diaries’ journey began in the winter season of 2011 on Maui. Having already established themselves as professional photographers in 2006, Sofie Louca and Paul Karaolides, took a leap into water sports photography. Their dedication and commitment to the industry grew and they have become highly regarded as two of the leading photographers in windsurfing photography.

They have been commissioned by top name brands such as Goya Windsurfing, Quatro Windsurfing, Naish, Fanatic, KT surfing, Duotone and many more. Sofie & Paul are privileged to have had so many opportunities to work with some of the very best athletes and world champions in the field of windsurfing and surfing.

The name Fish Bowl Diaries is widely associated with high end photography. The quality and style of Sofie & Paul’s images has become immediately recognizable as their signature work. They have created a loyal worldwide following and are sponsored by Gath Sports, Tiffen Filters & FLM Canada.
