"Since childhood i do belong to the Sea. I need the contact because it teaches me new lessons over and over" says Patrick Neumann, award winning underwater photographer and Nauticam Ambassador.
"I started diving as a kid of seven years. My experience grew over the time to now over 38 years and 3800+ dives all over the world.
I was born in Cologne, Germany where i also grew up, went to school, to university and got a job as key account manager in a credit insurance company.
Back in 2007 i quit my well paid job and went to Asia to work on a Liveaboard as instructor & guide to follow my dream to become an underwater photographer and make a living out of it.
2010 i came back to Germany and started my photo business Art Design Photography by Patrick Neumann. Next to magazine work i lead workshops about underwater photography and guide participants through the interaction with wildlife.
Since early 2018 i am living and working in Egypt. I am working as Instructor, Guide and Photo-Pro leading safaris in the Red Sea with Deep Blue Cruises.
We are on the boats Firebird and Thunderbird. (see partners)
I took all my underwater images with a Canon Eos 7D in a Hugyfot housing and a Canon 5D Mark IV in a Nauticam housing."
