Reinhard Arndt Profile

Reinhard Arndt

I am from Germany
Member since: Monday, May 2, 2011
I was born in 1948 in Berlin.
I learned to dive in 1995 in the Maldives and was fascinated right away by the world below the surface of the seas. Since 1996 I have combined diving with my long-term passion for photography.
Several times a year I travel to various dive spots world-wide (especially in tropical seas). My logbook contains more than 1800 dives in locations such as the Galápagos, Caribbean, Bahamas, Azores, Mediterranean, Red Sea, Maldives, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia and Micronesia (some of which I have dived frequently).
I write articles for photo and dive magazines, and some of my works have appeared on winner lists of national and international photo-contests.
One goal of my photography is to show viewers the fascination, beauty and diversity of corals and marine life, but also to draw attention to the fragility of this ecosystem.
