face to face


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?

A man
of depth.

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.
