The need to be in the water …. The desire to share my passion … The envy to educate people about the beauty and richness of our oceans, lakes and rivers …. ” Born in Sierre, a small town in the middle of the Swiss Alps in December 1968, I have lived all his youth abroad, My father was working for an International Oil Company. I had the chance to experience scuba diving in Papua New Guinea in 1985 where I achieved my first Scuba Diving Certification. From this experience on, all my holidays were based on the sport I loved to practice only at sea. It was only in 1995 that I discovered scuba diving in our cold waters in Switzerland, participating in a course for the obtention of a new Diving Certification in the Lake of Geneva … and it was for me the “Spark” – the beginning of a real Passion. Since then, I dive regularly, exploring lakes, rivers and seas all around the world with my wife Caroline – fortunately – sharing also my passion. I discovered Underwater Photography almost by accident, during a visit to the Maldives and it is for a cruise in Thailand in 2003 that I bought my first camera with an underwater housing. From this experience, the passion of Underwater Photography has accompanied me in all his dives. Currently my main purpose is to show people my Passion, My Work and above all my Desire is to cultivate a greater awareness of the surprising beauty and riches of the underwater world there is in lakes and rivers. My favorite subject in Freshwater is : the Pike Fish.
