Christoph Gerigk loves a good challenge. From wreck diving and underwater archeology to reef expeditions and exciting nature reports: Christoph is always looking for a slightly different perspective, even if it’s not really the most pleasant one. Or maybe that’s why?
The deeper the better: Christoph has devoted his work to excavation sites, caves and abandoned wrecks. Even poor visibility cannot deter him from his photo adventures and he enjoys working with special techniques such as UV lamps and remote systems. Stitching has been his specialty for years, as seen above in the shot of the Brothers in Egypt composed of more than 1000 images – and who knows, maybe this was just the beginning…
The housings are designed with a perfect fit while maintaining the characteristics and philosophy of the built-in cameras – simply excellent tools for photographers.Christoph Gerigk
