In 1970 I found out, that a camera is a fascinating tool. A long dream became reality in 1977, my beginning of scuba diving. In 1980 I’ve got my first underwater camera, a Nikonos IV-A, and a hobby turned into passion. My success in many photo-competitions across Europe, attention attracted slide shows and a cooperation with Helmut Debelius (IKAN, Slide Stock) in Frankfurt , showed me the way into professional uw-photography with soon following publications in diving-, aquarium- and photo magazines.
In 1982 my first story with text and pictures was printed. In 1983 I published the first cover photo on TEAM TAUCHEN, a diving magazine. One year later I started the editorial work with the same magazine. In 1987 my cooperation with UWF magazine (Underwater Photography) began.
In 1995 UWF turned into unterwasser, (en: underwater) a monthly diving magazine in highest quality.
Today I am working for Germany’s two big diving magazines unterwasser (en: underwater) and tauchen (en: diving).
As photographer and writer I wrote a large number of reports and did photo jobs around diving and the wonders of the sea. Together with my wife and uw-model Johanna Beloch, there is a successful team, traveling around the world.
