"Since childhood i do belong to the Sea. I need the contact because it teaches me new lessons over and over again" 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 40 years and 5000 + 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.
From early 2018 until january 2020 i was living and working in Egypt as Instructor, Guide and Photo-Pro leading safaris in the Red Sea with Deep Blue Cruises.
Since january 2020 i joined the Solitude Liveaboards & Resorts family as one of their general managers. We are operating Resorts & Liveaboards in indonesia, Palau and the Philippines. I am located in north sulawesi as Resort Manager & Photo Pro at Solitude Lembeh Resort and the Critters Capitol of the world, the famous Lembeh Strait is now my backyard. Truly photographers heaven.
