Random Winning Photographer
Andi Voeltz
Andi Voeltz is co-founder of the worldwide reknown DIGIDEEP.com website and a digital underwater photographer since 1998, a time when underwater housings were hard to find and established underwater photographers were making jokes about digital rookies trying to squeeze underwater images out of their equipment. Next to college he started working as a freelance journalist and (underwater) photographer. He is also a scuba instructor and specialty trainer for underwater video- and photography. In 2005 Andi was hired by PADI, the worlds largest training organisation for scuba diving, to co-develop their new Digital Unterwater Photography course. The D.U.P. course was introduced in January 2006 on a worldwide level. The educational materials have been translated in more than eight different languages. For Andi this was a point were he had to admit that his hobby had transformed into a profession. He loves to travel and document his underwater adventures with a camera - video or still. He still thinks to have one of the coolest jobs in the world, which he could not have imagined 10 years ago.
