ABOUT TURTLE & RAY PRODUCTIONS

We are Turtle & Ray! Passionate divers, photographers, videographers and editors. Founded by Letícia & Arne in 2009; we started of with one camera in a single dive shop. Now 7 years later T&R has become the largest company doing underwater photography and videography in Curaçao. We partnered up with more dive shops, have done jobs with Curaçao Tourist Board and local companies; and for TV stations around the world to showcase Curaçao’s amazing underwater world and its animal life and reef. Have a look at our photos and videos and you will see. And we hope to meet you soon in our dushi Korsow 🙂

Arne,
I am German, born in Wetzlar, I am a carpenter, PADI IDC Staff Instructor, PADI free-diver videographer/photographer, and movie maker. When I was a little boy, I learned diving in the cold waters of Germany. Since then, I have completed over four thousand dives in the Baltic Sea, in the Pacific Ocean (Galapagos), Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea, and Caribbean Sea. Working with underwater video/photo equipment showed me new aspects of diving. It is my top priority to deliver the best possible photos and videos made by Turtle & Ray Productions to all our customers. And I also hope,  one day,  through knowledge, governments and people will put ocean protection on top of every agenda!

Letícia,
Brazilian, passionate about animals, the Ocean and to live in tune with nature with a Yogi and Ayurveda lifestyle. Always liked to observe the animals and to be in nature, after taking my first scuba diver course I realized I wanted to be as close as possible to this new world! At the University than studied Biology to become a marine biologist  and then became a scuba diver instructor to share this passion and so the underwater photography/videography called my attention to document the incredible marine life. After also complete a Yoga teaching training 3 years ago, I started teaching Yoga classes on the island and as well share Ayurvedic guidelines.
Thaís,
I am a Brazilian journalist who decided to travel and explore more the world. After some volunteer jobs in South Africa, Thailand and in Brazil, I started to discover the magnificent underwater world and became a diver. There I could practice more my documentary skills working with underwater images, which happened first in Fernando de Noronha, archipelago in the State of Pernambuco, Brazil in the areas of the Marine National Park. After Noronha, I came to Curaçao in the Caribbean Islands to join Turtle and Ray team and, in addition to producing the underwater images, also working with the pictures and videos editing and finalization. Registering the beauty of nature and being able to show it to others through my eyes is one of my passions.

Katie,
I was born in the UK and have a background in Chemistry but a few years ago I decided to swap my lab coat for a wetsuit and leave London in search of warmer climes.   I learnt to dive when I was 12 with my dad and completely fell in love with it.  Before I joined the T&R team I spent 6 months in Mexico helping monitor the reef system for NGOs.

Meg,
For years I dreamed of life in the Caribbean. Two years ago I decided to leave my desk job (at an amazing non-profit food rescue in Boston) to travel around the world for almost a year, eventually ending up in the Caribbean. During my travels I had the opportunity to get back into scuba diving, and behind the camera—both have been life long passions. Turtle and Ray was the perfect way to translate both into a living. I feel so grateful to be able to be part of the team at T&R so that every day I can be underwater (my happy place) and use the camera to share the beauty of Curacao’s sea-life and scenery.
