                   RTL explosiv weekend

 

Unique recordings arose from a photoshooting at Palma Aquarium on Mallorca as the underwater model Nadine Werner, disguised as a mermaid, plunged into Europe´s deepest shark pool. Photographs, which are presenting an almost playfully approximation between the king of the oceans and the mermaid.

 Exhibition f.re.e

 

Within the scope of the big water sports, outdoor and leisure exhibition f.re.e an exposition of my works has happened from 23rd to 27th February 2011 in Munich, Germany. Twelve of my exhibits have been displayed in cooperation with PosterXXL to the interested visitors and selled at auction for a good cause.

PRO7 Sommermädchen

 

On behalf of PRO7 I flew to Barcelona, Spain, to draw attention to the candidates of PRO7´s "Sommermädchen 2011" with their breath-taking evening dressses underwater. This summer-show, moderated by Jana Ina and Giovanni Zarella, lives from Meditteranean flair, white beaches and beautiful girls.

Ballet arabesque

 

Ballet - expression of totally beauty, elegance and aesthetics. The skill of physical and spiritual discipline. The brazilian ballerina and model  Sabrina Velloso di Almeida had the courage to come with us into the unknown wet element. She danced herself into the hearts of all participants with her sensual, dreamly and playfully lightness under water.

Expedition Leyte

 

Southern Leyte is a province of the Philippines where Ferdinand Magellan 1521 hold the first christian mass on this island. A place with historic heritage. Reason enough for us to fling ourselves into adventure and risk an expedition into the unknown.

Caribbean Mermaids

 

We had magical moments during our cooperation with two really beautiful mermaids on Curaçao. For the film-shootings with RTL we let Hannah Fraser, topmodel from L.A., directly flew into the Caribbean. Furthermore Miss Curaçao, Monifa Jansen, has reached our focal point underwater for the first time.

RTL explosiv weekend

 

Caribbean sun, heavenly dive sites and charming models is just the right cocktail for a saturday night show on TV. On Curaçao we were able to act one more time in front and behind the cameras. For RTL we portraited two lovely and exceptional mermaids in the wet element and let the dreams of a mermaid come true.

Tears of a mermaid

 

With her movie "Tears of a mermaid" the most known underwater model of the U.S., Hannah Fraser, wants to draw attention to the drawbacks and the cries for help from our oceans. We feel honoured to occur beside Philippe Cousteau, the Oscar Award winning director Louie Psihoyos and further colleagues in this film which is produced by Eric Donaldson.

Garden of eden

 

Papua New Guinea, a place of superlatives. Glaciers, thick rainforest, active volcanos and until now an unknown biodiversity above and also under water are making this country to one of the last pristine nature paradises on earth. In cooperation with the four leading resorts of this country we discovered this unique country of exploration.

Salon de la Photo

 

Within the big photo exhibition "Salon de la Photo" in Paris we not only got the chance to sight our exposed mermaids, but also took a look at the brand new flagship from OLYMPUS, together with OLYMPUS France. Holding the new OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1 in our hands and experiencing it so tight, is definately setting the course for our future.

Exploring Sulawesi

 

Welcome to divers´ paradise for underwater photographers and macro-enthusiasts. The Eldorado for lovers of nudibranchs. Just a few steps away from the beautiful located resort a stunning, higgledy-piggledy and varied underwater world begins. Quirky reef creatures are presenting themselves along the different dive sites of Sulawesi.

OLYMPUS visionaries

 

"Become inspired!". OLYMPUS Europe is presenting their new website in a new glance and also the OLYMPUS visionaries with their Inspiration Area. We proudly present being a part of this extraordinary project with our works. OLYMPUS and art & water - a powerful team.

Fashion below surface

 

Fashion week model meets underwater photographer. For our shooting with the Russian model Kseniya Arhangelova we relocate the catwalk from below surface to underwater. After walking on the fashion weeks, after uncountable shootings in the focus of famous fashion photographers this underwater shooting was one of the biggest challenges for our beautiful siren.

Mermaids & Sirens

 

Without doubts mermaids have a magical allure. Beautiful beings of the depth. Pirates and sailors once felt in love with these legendary creatures and thereby lost their life. We are diving into this fairy-tale empire, meeting those attractive and bewitching mermaids and sirens as well.

Dushi Kòrsou

 

Bon bini Curaçao. Easy diving, colorful and amazing dive sites and healthy reefscapes - that´s Curaçao. We enjoyed the world below surface so much. Why? Just take a look at the pictures. Did we whet your appetite? For sure Curaçao is a tropical hotspot and guarantor for unforgettable dives.

Whalesharks & Cenotes

 

We have been diving underneath the tight jungle of Mexico in the Cenotes and discovered the mystical temples and underworld of the Mayas. Another highlight was the worldwide biggest cluster of whalesharks in front of Isla Mujeres. Have you ever been snorkeling with between 50 up to 100 whalesharks? We did. Just stunning!

MyOLYMPUS

 

With MyOlympus a new stage for photographers is born. The right place to showcase images shot with OLYMPUS cameras. Photographers from all over the world can connect,  swap ideas and look at stunning pictures. MyOlympus is our place as OLYMPUS Visionaries to share our photographs with others.

Adventure New Guinea

 

After 2 years our spirit of adventure brings us back to Papua New Guinea, the richest country of species on earth. Follow us into a country where flora and fauna are that varied and colourful like the fascinating and intact coral reefs. Unique rainforests, active volcanos, wrecks and relicts from WWII and also island life of a Robinson Crusoe are waiting.

OLYMPUS Playground

 

Newly terrain. This time we left the water and tried ourselves as model photographers ashore. The OLYMPUS Playground Munich delivered unbelievable locations with three different impressing workshops and great people. The OLYMPUS Visionary Family from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands came together for this special event.

Smells like teen spirit

 

The intimate relationship between mother and child, the first moments underwater. Unique and special. The seemingly natural lightness of being in the wet element is no difficulty for the new-born’s. We are taking photographs of the smallest water lovers. An experience that gives a variety to regular model shootings and travel stories from all over the world.

OLYMPUS action factory

 

It´s one thing having a workshop at a real Hollywood location. So to say we were allowed to follow in the footsteps of Tom Cruise or Wesley Snipes. But it´s another thing to test the latest camera of OLYMPUS, the OM-D E-M5 Mark II. Best worldwide image stabilization, 40 MB high resolution shot and live composing left us breathless.

Partner Scubapro

 

At this point we would like to say a big “thank you” to SUBGEAR for the trust and the longstanding cooperation with us. We proudly present now SCUBAPRO as our new partner and outfitter. Looking forward to a long and successful cooperation. Deep down we want the best, deep down with SCUBAPRO we have the best.

For water enthusiasts the Philippines are standing for one big thing: the small things underwater. True to the motto "Klein, aber oho" our article has been published in the dive magazine UNTERWASSER, reflecting the beautiful and sometimes bizarre world of critters around tiny Cabilao Island. A fascinating, small journey down to the underwaterworld between Cebu and Bohol.

The heart of Raja Ampat

 

Raja Ampat. A must-have on every bucketlist. Big fish and richness in fish so exorbitant that even experienced divers become ecstatic. For our article "Gegen den Strom" in the dive magazine UNTERWASSER we jumped into the biggest fish soup of Indonesia. Colorful, healthy reefs and stunning big fish population, and last but not least the mantas, stood in the focus of our cameras.

OLYMPUS wild valley

 

Ronda, deep in the south of Spain, was meeting-point for the OLYMPUS visionaries from whole Europe.

Exploring open spaces

 

Papua New Guinea – a tropical and forgotten paradise. Huge parts of the country are untouched and completely native. Thereby Papua New Guinea is especially one thing: colourful.

Lights of Singapore

 

Singapore - a city full of pulsing lights and colourful impressions. Better known as the “city of gardens”. A city state where a jungle of lush green is overgrowing glass, concrete and steel. A real oasis and a perfect place for a relaxing stopover. Exploring the Gardens by the Bay or the streets full of life - just stunning!

Mexican mermaid

 

Together with our partners OLYMPUS, SCUBAPRO and ProDiveMexico we are going to realize a really magical and mystical underwater model shooting in Yucatán, Mexico. Catching up with the beautiful mermaid Hannah Fraser in the Mexican cenotes. Doubtless not the regular catwalk for a  model or even an underwater model.
