About Joerg

Im a self taught underwater photographer since 2013 and started underwater videography in 2018. After a lot of beginner mistakes I started to better understand the principles of underwater photography by reading the books by Martin Edge and Alexander Mustard. Since then I am definitely hooked and I especially love the creative possibilities in wide angle images. I work as a diving instructor and guide in the Maldives and  hope to spend more and more time underwater with photography and video. For image licenses, prints or anything else regarding underwater photo/video please contact me at blessingjoerg@gmail.com or through this website. Thank you
