travels with tam, about“In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught.” (Baba Dioum, 1968.)

Why write a series about Ocean Friends? Baba Dioum said it perfectly. I am the blogger/travel writer/photographer behind Travels with Tam, and the author of ALL FISH FACES. I have traveled to all seven continents, and am an advocate for citizen science, the environment, and getting out of one’s comfort zone. An avid scuba diver, I take many trips involving diving and the marine world, and I am a very enthusiastic amateur underwater photographer. I challenge my perspective, my confidence, my knowledge and my physical ability by traveling the world, and sharing what I’ve learned with others. My book series, Ocean Friends, introduces beautiful underwater creatures you may have never seen before! As a former university Lecturer and college consultant, I am a firm believer that knowledge is power, and education is always a positive force. Teaching people to love our oceans and ocean animals is the best way to preserving our oceans for future generations!

I am thrilled to have published my very first book, ALL FISH FACES! You may find it on Amazon and on my Amazon author page, Tam Warner Minton.   I’m planning a series of books called OCEAN FRIENDS to introduce children of all ages (adults too!) to the wonderful underwater world of the ocean. 10% of profits will go to the Marine Megafauna Foundation in order to help fund their research into our ocean giants!


Amazon reviews link

“Completely inspired by this amazing book from solo female traveler Tam Warner Minton who has taken her love for marine photography and created a passion project to give others a window in the underwater world. Tam is as intrigued with the incredible diversity of fishes in our ocean and their unique personalities as I am. This book helps to showcase just how incredible this group of animals is, making it fun an accessible for anyone to learn more about these amazing animals. Tam is also loval supporter of the Marine Megafauna Foundation and chooses generously to donate a portion of the proceeds from this book’s sales with this organization who is helping to Save Ocean Giants from Extinction. Ultimately this is a testament to what one person can achieve when they set out to share their passion with others. The book is ideal for kids, my own little girl has a copy and loves it!”
Dr Andrea Marshall is a marine biologist known for her research into manta rays, and a founder of the Marine Megafauna Foundation. She was the subject of the Natural World documentary Andrea: Queen of Mantas. 
 “ALL FISH FACES by Tam Warner Minton is an underwater treasure of tropical reef fish faces, some fierce, some fun, but all a joy for fish fans young and old. Impressive photos and interesting facts — including names of every fish featured — create a colorful dive log worth experiencing again and again. My 9-year-old grandson loved perusing the pages, pointing out his favorites and learning fun facts about them.” Lisa Carpenter, author of Grandma’s Briefs.

Amazon review 
I love this book. I have always been obsessed with fish faces myself. There is so much charismatic life under the sea and this book introduces people to the amazing world of little creatures that live beneath the waves. Great pick for kids that love the ocean. This is also an amazing example of what can be achieved by a caring underwater photographer who wants to help educate others about the thing she is passionate about. Well done.
Amazon Review
What a fun, informative and beautiful book! This little treasure made me really think about the living creatures in the oceans as someone I share this planet with. This book is great for kids and totally enjoyable and educational for adults, too!
