About Me

Hi there!

I learned diving 2002 in the Swiss lakes, completing the whole set of courses up to the PADI DM in the local waters. Diving is my passion, no matter if the dive spot is located in a murky Swiss lake or in the crystal clear water of the Red Sea. Getting into underwater photography changed my mind a bit though. In 2005 I bought a Sony DSC-P200 point and shoot and packed it in an Ikelite housing. This was a great little toy do take some snaps in the lakes, and good enough to carry along on my dive holidays.
In January 2007 I moved to Australia. Suddenly diving is not just about great deep walls and seeing a fish every other dive - there are so many different species to observe around Sydney! I took along my little camera on every dive, realising more and more the limitations of this little toy. In May 2008 I finally purchased a Canon G9 with an Ikelite housing and an Inon Z-240 strobe. A whole new world! I am still very new to serious underwater phtotgraphy, just about to getting used to the manual camera settings and the handling of the strobe.

Please let me know what you honestly think about my pictures, there is still so much to learn for me. But I am definitely enjoying it!!

Btw, if you are looking for a buddy for a few dives around Sydney let me know, I am almost always keen on getting wet!

Cheers,
roland
