Welcome to the advanced underwater photography section!
With the OM-D E-M1 Mark II and PT-EP14 housing, we can also offer a compact solution for professional underwater photographers. Those who regard underwater photography as more than a hobby know about common challenges for taking pictures under water, like backscatter, diminishing light at lower depths and the importance of lens quality. The PT-EP14 is the only housing featuring an exchangeable lens port system that gives access to a wide range of lenses perfectly fitting to advanced underwater photography including the remarkable M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 8mm 1:1.8 Fisheye PRO.
Our Visionaries David and Melanie from Art & Water (Germany), Juan José (Spain) and Ann Karin (Norway) are fascinated by life below sea level. With the OM-D E-M1 Mark II our Visionaries have the freedom to capture amazing images in the deep sea.
David Benz - Olympus Visionary
“I´m an underwater photographer and I have fallen into love with mostly all of the oceans on our blue planet. From Papua New Guinea through the Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia up to the sunny Caribbean and Red Sea I am travelling to the most beautiful dive spots on earth. I call the ocean my job. A place which could really not be more beautiful. The permanent desire for the depths of the oceans, the indescribable itchy feet and last but not least the infinite pleasure about my work as underwater photographer are pushing me and let my dreams come true.”
Ann Karin Matberg - Olympus Visionary
My heart and soul have always been drawn towards the sea. Underwater you find a quiet and surprising world, full of colors, beautiful and strange animals, odd collaborations and interesting encounters. For me diving is the perfect match of mindfulness and meditation. It gives me peace like nothing else. Hovering under water, completely weightless, peeking into a world few people know, getting to understand the animals and their behavior – nothing can beat that!
Juan José Sáez Méndez - Olympus Visionary
I am a shark enthusiast. I have photographed different species in several locations of the world: white sharks on Isla de Guadalupe, whale and gray sharks in the Maldives, Caribbean and silky sharks in Cuba, Longimanus and foxes in the Red Sea, black and white tips in Sipadán, hammerhead sharks in Baja California, etc.
"Photography is a creative discipline like any other art form and if you want your work to be interesting, within the subjectivity of art, you have to be able to isolate a part of the whole to create the image.
