My name is Chris "Chrigel" Karrer and i was born and rised in Switzerland but in 1996 i left to Sardinia,
the second biggest island of the mediterreanean sea belonginmg to Italy.
I started to dive dive there and meanwhile i an PADI and SSI Instructor and own a dive operation in Sardinia and in winter time i move to Costa Rica where i own a second dive operation.
I come of a family of photographers and movie makers so is learned photography from when i was a child and finding me with a exposure meter and the camera in my hands or developing in the darkroom was not rare at all.
The development of digital photography raised my passion for photography and i stepped up from a
Coolpix 2000 over a Fuji E900 and then D90,D700 and now to my D800.
I used 2 Ikelite housings for the E900 and the D90 and then i switched to Hugyfot and i am very happy with this housings.

P.S. "Chrigel" is the swissgerman short version of Chris(tian) and i was called almost my whole life Chrigel but for international language issues i (had) to switch to Chris making the pronunciation much easier for non swiss speaking people.
