Into The Blue
Big Blue & Coasts is a photography collection of my pictures featuring underwater images and photographs from coastlines. These ecosystems are teeming with life and are every photographer’s dream. Exploring these ecosystems has endless opportunities. However, it is very challenging to work there, espacially because of the water. The differnent species and wildlife you can encounter is almost surreal. You can snap bald eagles mid-air, photograph sharks while scuba diving or snap macro shots on tropical reefs.
I started underwater photography during the pandemic. At first, I bought myself a cheap underwater rig. Unfortunately, I flooded it during my first trip to the Red Sea. It was an used Lumix LX100 with a cheap plastic housing. After five years of diving in cold and murky Austrian lakes, I decided to to a Red Sea Liveaboard. Undoubtedly this was one of the best decisions because we saw sharks, manta rays, dolphins and many more for the first time. In the last two years I tried to travel and dive as much as possible. The bucket list of dive spots and must-see wildlife is shrinking with every journey.
