Dive Photo Guide
Andre Crone


Years Shooting:Edit
24 years


Award winning photo journalist Andre Crone started diving when he was 24 years old. He bought his first underwater camera as soon as he got his first diving license. He started his production company Elysia Productions four years ago together with his wife Eveline. This combination proved to be successful. Andre creates the images and Eveline writes the articles that are published in many of the big diving magazines all over the world. Andre's images have been published in Fathoms Magazine, Unterwasser and BBC Wildlife Magazine just to name a few. He has a slight preference for cold water diving. Just because he believes pictures made in cold waters are more special and more bizarre. You can see this in his productions about Antarctica, Svalbard and Tasmania. But, as most photo journalists he will not hesitate to travel to the tropics to produce his articles. Andre won Celebrate the Sea in the wide angle prints category and was second in the prints portfolio category in the same contest. He has also won prices on other contests in many countries.

What I look for in a Dive Operator:
I am looking for personal attention. A good production is really dependant on how good the guides are. A good guide can find you much more photo opportunities than you can find yourself in an area you have never dived before. I love dive operators that provide all the freedom on which dive sites you visit on a diving day. I don't care to dive 5 times on the same spot on a day. That will only provide you with better images.
