Thomas Van Puymbroeck, based out of Belgium, is an award-winningphotographer. His passion for underwater photography began over 10 yearsago. Growing up he was already passionate about the underwater life. Eventhough he graduated as multimedia graphic designer, he pursued his dreamjob at the local public aquarium in Antwerp.
Working there he had to take a diving course. After his first few dives he knew for sure: he wanted to take pictures. Because photography is his way of showing the wonders ofthe underwater world. Besides the beauty it is also his way of makingpeople aware, of making them see a world too few people are exposed to andurgently needs our protection.
Together with his wife he travel the worldin search of the most beautiful diving spots, capturing these uniquemoments, places and animals.
He is often referred to as one of the Belgian shark ambassadors. Everyyear millions of sharks are killed out of fear or simple profit . Thomas’spurpose in life is to make people conscious of the need to protect thesemagnificent creatures, to learn more about them, … instead of killingthem…
