Welcome to the advanced underwater photography section!
With the OM-D E-M1 Mark II and PT-EP14 housing, we can offer a compact solution for professional and experienced underwater photographers. Those who regard underwater photography as more than a hobby will know about the common challenges when 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.
All our Visionaries are great fans of the OM-D E-M1 Mark II which gives them the chance to capture amazing images up to 60m deep. Read more about them and their journeys with the OM-D E-M1 Mark II on our Blog.

“I´m an underwater photographer and I have fallen in 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!

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.
Niklas Nilsson - Olympus Visionary
I’m a nature photographer all way out in the fingertips. From childhood to present time my passion for the nature has driven my photography further, both above and below the water surface! The underwater world has always fascinated me, no matter if there is a small pond or a great ocean, you will find amazing wildlife there. For me, underwater photography is more than just a way to take great photos. It's about showing non-diving people a hidden world and make them aware of the amazing variety of wildlife that our waters contain. I have just recently switched to the OM-D E-M1 Mark II to capture this beauty. It has fully convinced me with its features but also, the TG-5 regularly accompanies me on my travels and the workshops I'm hosting.
