Roads are perfect. And you can never get lost here in Belize. You can get to places easily. +Kimberly Buckner

Surrounded by a low frequency, slowed downed buzz, like a large bumblebee on pot, followed by a loud pop, like two marbles hitting. Again and again, behind me, in front, above and below me. Found the culprits, love sick black capped manakins, at least six all lekking, vying for the attentions of a single female flying back and forth testing the strength and trueness of each suitor. Such a strange love story taking place in the jungles of the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary #CBWS #Belize

With the long, thick bill and long legs, the Willet is beautifully adapted to feed in the surf line. Imagine the same shoreline fouled with spilled oil...#Dangriga #Belize #SayNotoOffshoreOilBelize

They are known as "The couple that holds hands". "Baloney," she says, "I hold his hand to keep from falling down, he holds my hand so he doesn't get lost". Stuff my parents say.

Story
Tagline
Tony Rath is a editorial and commercial photographer based in Dangriga Belize
Introduction
Tony Rath is a well published editorial and commercial photographer based along the shore of the Caribbean Sea in the picturesque village of Dangriga, Belize.

He was born somewhere, and then grew up. Along the way he canoed the Quetico, flew gliders in the USAF, became a marine biologist; worked as a technician, diver and underwater photographer for the Smithsonian Institution; worked underwater on oil rigs, missile launch sites and submersibles off the California Coast;  captained a sailboat across the Atlantic Ocean (twice) and through the Mediterranean and North Seas, commercial fished north of the Arctic Circle, lived in different cities and worked with different famous and important people.

Then he ended up in Belize in 1988. Since then he has explored and photographed most of Belize by land, sea and air. He has also photographed the countries in Central America and Mexico. He has won a bunch of important and impressive awards/contests for some of his work, and his clients include an eclectic group of discerning and talented editors, art directors, publications and companies.

He's really awesome, generally funny, some say easy to work with and really good with dogs, loves the outdoors and is always studying natural light.  Hire him, buy stock stills and footage from him, or ask him a question.  You can find him online at:
