|My German dive-buddies
called me "Nacktschneckenjäger", i.e. "nudibranch-hunter".
I went as often as possible
to the Philippine islands and took
underwater pictures of sea-slugs.
My job: retired since
1st February 2005, before database administrator at T-Systems, Germany
I tried to start diving
in 1979, failed the examination, started diving and uw-photography in 1989.
My first uw-photography eqipment was:
NIKONOS V, 28mm and 35mm lenses, several SEA & SEA close-up-sets and
Nikon SB 103 flash gun.
In 1995 I focussed
in taking photos of sea-slugs and flatworms, therefore I changed the equipment
NIKON F90 X, SEALUX
housing and 2 subtronic flash guns.
In 2001 did I the change
to digital photography with a NIKON COOLPIX 990 in a SEALUX housing and 1
subtronic ALPHA PRO MACRO flashgun.
In 2005 I started working
with a NIKON D100 also in a SEALUX housing, still using the subtronic ALPHA
PRO MACRO flashgun.
In 2007 I got asthma and had to stop
diving. I sold my complete diving and uw-photography equipment.
I had a stroke on 11th June 2008, now I take care of my 2 websites on sea-slugs:
Mediterranean Slug Site and Philippine-Sea-Slugs
