Roland Bach is a german CMAS 3Star instructor who owns a Diving Shop "MARINA DIVERS MENORCA" on the spanish island Minorca (Balearics). A diver since 1988 with now over 11.000 dives, started with serious underwater photography in 2008. From that time on he won in many national and international competitions. Roland is in love with the landscape (cavern and caves) of the mediterranean sea. But his special interest is with the biology of jellyfish and ctenophores. While everybody else gets out of the sea because of too many jellyfish, Roland is getting ready for an underwater shooting with his favourite subjects. Especially his "Jelly-Art" shot are worldwide published.
