Member since: Sunday, February 7, 2010
During my professional activity as an Barakuda / CMAS instructor trainer I have come in contact to underwater photography and become my favorite hobby.

I am born in Germany and live of the Balearic Island Menorca ( Spain ). Together with my girlfiend I work in our small but very nice Dive Centre. In the high season it's no way to dive with camera. Rest of year you will find us mostly under the surface taking photos.

I am happy to share my experiences with like-minded here on the UWP page. Actual, I take pictures with a Nikon D300 in Sealux housing and Nikon strobe SB 900.
