UWP: ALEXANDER C. ALLGAYER

























ALEXANDER C. ALLGAYER



After living and in several countries like Mexico, Venezuela and USA since the age of 5, Alexander  finally settled on the Caribbean island of Curacao in 1992.

Not too long after he went for his first dive and immediately got hooked.

After finishing his OWD he progressed to become a dive instructor in 1997.

He took an interest in photography after seeing a good friend take some beautiful photos with his DSLR. Several P&S cameras later he discovered the Canon G7X (the model he still uses today) which showed some great technological improvements over the cameras from yesteryear.

He has been shooting with the same model for about 6 years now and along the way discovering the tricks of the trade regarding light, lenses, technique and overall handling of the camera setup in the underwater world. Macro photography is his preferred way of shooting.

"It is a nice feeling when the photos improve over time and experience. It is very rewarding what can be accomplished today, with a little patience and experience, with relatively inexpensive underwater photo equipment".

Alex dives on a regular basis in Curacao (where all these photos were taken) always looking for new ways to improve the quality of the photos. He takes photos just for pleasure and for the fun of showing them on several social media sites.

"Seeing so many excellent photos of other passionate underwater photographers keeps me motivated and aspiring for yet another great shot"

Not having a FB site of his own you can check out Christa Allgayer Schulz on FB for up to date infos on Curacao and his photography.
