All the competitors and assistants.

Me and Thomas Ravn

Before we went onboard the dive boats, we had to take a photo of one of the judges. and then another photo of a judge after the last dive of the day. So that the photos in between could only have been taken in the competition.

October 2013. Editor-in-chief Henrik Pontoppidan made an article about MIMA featuring my underwater Photos.

The organizers of the Underwater Festival MIMA in Costa Brava, Spain, 5/6 - 9/6, had decided that they wanted to invite a Danish underwater photographer this year to participate in their underwater photo competition. They asked the Danish Sportsdiving Federation about a Danish underwater photographer, and lucky for me my name came up!
With me as my Buddy/Model I had my friend Thomas Ravn, who was a great help during the competition! :-) 

I didn't finish in the top, but I had heaps of fun and learned a lot!!!
It was a splash-in competition with six categories spread over just four dives.

-environment with model
-open topic
-mediterranean wrasse

The six first photos in the folder are my competition entries.
 The rest are shots that I had to deselect. And some of them are just the shots taken up to the ones I chose for the competition.

Equipment used: Nikon D300. Sea&Sea housing. Twin YS110a strobes. Lenses: Tokina 10-17mm FE & Nikon 105mm macro. Extras: SubSee +10 dioptre
