Thank you for visiting my profile.

I was born in Belgium in 1967 and still living there, despite of the bad weather and water conditions. I started diving in 2005. My first UW photo (dust, near the object, unsharp) dates from March 2007. After three years of fighting with my wife Els Van Den Borre about 'Who shall take the Compact camera now?' we both bought a DSLR camera.

In my first UW photo competition I was immediately awarded with a bronzen medal. During the second edition of the HugyCup in 2010 I shooted some other winning photo's.
(You do not have to be good looking to be lucky you know!)

Thanks to the huge number of tremendously UW photo's underwaterphotography.com inspires me to make better pictures myself.

Although, my goal is to make a photo that catches the eye and is totaly different than the other ones!
