Hi and welcome,
I’m a graduated student and travelling in Australia at the moment. I started diving in 1998 and I have been going on a yearly diving holiday with my parents since than.
I love being in and around the ocean so much that I wanted to share these experiences with friends, family and other people because it is unknown territory for most of them. That’s why I decided to start practising underwater photography in july 2009. I use an Olympus SP-560 UZ digital camera, Olympus housing, a single z-240 inon strobe and recently got the UCL-165 and UCL-330 inon macro wet lenses.
This passion for capturing underwater life was strengthened by my friend Matt Tworkowski, a great underwater photographer. Hope you enjoy watching the pictures as much as I enjoyed it in real life and let me know what you think!
