I started diving with our two sons Alexander and Constantijn in 2004 in Indonesia. My better second half Natasha and our daughter Amaryllis joined our diveteam in Phuket Thailand in 2005.
Underwater photography I started in 2005 with a smaller SONY camera and over the years i had 3 different ones each with their own housings .
I made in 2006 “the big step forward” to a Digital Single Lens Reflex camera. I bought my first Nikon D 200. A new world of photography emerged.
It took me till 2010 and the discovery of the Hugycheck system of Hugyfot to buy my first Hugyfot Nikon D 200 DSLR housing and to start taking my Nikon D 200 into the Deep Blue. My Hugyfot DSLR housing is equiped with a 45 degree viewfinder. The D200’s iTTL strobe-signal is converted to a Nikonos signal by a Heinrichs-WeinkampiTTL converter which Hugyfot built in into the Hugyfot DSLR housing. I use two Inon Z-240 strobes which are eletrically hard-wired to the Hugyfot housing. For my D 800 Hugyfot housing I use the internal camera strobe with fiberoptic cables for both Inon Z-240 strobes.
For macro, fish and nudibranch photography I use a Nikon 105 mm f/2.8G AF-S VR Micro lens and a Nikon 60 mm f/2.8G AF-S. Both lenses I combine now and then with DYRON UCL-77 wet macro lens. Recently I switched to +5 and +10 wet diopters from SubSea.
For wide angle photography I use a Nikon 14-24 mm f/2.8 FX wide angle zoom and a Nikon 10,5 mm f/2.8 G ED DX fisheye.
All post production I do with Aperture on a Macbook Pro.
