When I take a picture, I always try to transmit a feeling to the viewer and let the picture tell a story. This requires much time and dedication on each occasion. It needed many hours and patience to catch the perfect moment. In most cases there is just one chance for the perfect picture and I prepare with my finger on the trigger. Everything correctly adjusted, waiting for that moment to arrive. Only Subal housings give me the confidence that when the time comes, everything will come out just the way I want “ I shoot with Canon EOS 7D and Subal CD7 Housing.
