Our featured photographer for the month of September is dedicated to filming underwater creatures like no one else in the world has ever done.
Pawel Achtel has spent hours developing lenses specifically designed for the optical conditions of underwater cinematography. Achtel’s company has produced the most innovative underwater filming system in years – revolutionary new housings: Deep X and 3 Deep for shooting in 2D and 3D underwater.
The images showcased here on oceanplanet were shot off the East Coast of Tasmania during a deep dive to test out the one and only 3D camera housing.
“ Who would have thought that the most colourful reefs are not found in clear tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef. The cold and inhospitable reefs off Tasmania hide some of the most spectacular coral reef found on Earth dazzling with colour and teaming with marine life.” – Pawel Achtel
