I am German, born in Wetzlar. A carpenter by trade, also 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!
