Underwater Camera Operator
Starting with my open water in 2006 I first was just a holiday diver, but on a longtime travel through Asia, I got to Komodo and I got infected by the Dive-Virus. Since then I do around 100 dives a year, all with my camera and the aim to show the beauty of the Underwater World.
I startet in 2011 with a GoPro, but already after my first divetrip with it the quality was not good enough for me, so I upgraded to a Sony RX-100 and I shot with it a few years until I needed something professional. Now with a Panasonic GH5 I’am really satisfied and ready to go on more adventures.
Check out my Fotos and Videos here:
Two years ago, while diving at “Little Brother” in the Red Sea, I witnessed a very special behavior in an oceanic whitetip shark. I first thought the shark was giving birth but realized quickly that this can’t be possible. I forwarded the footage to Dr. Ornella Céline Weideli, a Swiss shark researcher, who told me it’s a cleansing process, or a so-called “intestinal eversion”. While this cleansing behavior itself is very rare to observe, the footage further showed two rainbow runners chasing and attacking the gut contents and the sharks’ intestines.
