Death isn’t an excepted conversation starter. In fact, even after experiencing a loss it wasn’t easy to talk about it or – even worse – to show feelings it causes – at least in my experience. We got condolences and sympathy right after the death of my father, basically until […]Read More
Blog: Dive, travel, connect & protect
Our English blog „Dive, travel, connect & protect“ is presenting photos, videos, experiences, research, opinions and ideas from Devocean Pictures as well as fellow ocean and nature lovers and like-minded initiatives. Our little stories are meant to take you out into the world as well as bringing the world and its (natural) wonders back to all of us.
Dive and travel
Follow our travels to guide and guard to destinations all around the world. We dive into unknown territory and broaden our horizons. In this blog, we don’t only want to document, but also analyse ecologic, economic, political and social problems and patterns to be able to pick and promote alternatives.
Connect and protect
We present people, projects, products, and possibilities to inspire change: live, love and learn from one another. Life is a constant search, a never-ending journey we like to share. We aim to continuously evolve and educate (ourselves) – in and outside the water. Our actions affect others, affect the world. Change is possible to protect our blue planet.
„Dive, travel, connect and protect“ is fuelled by our passion, but our mission doesn’t come without detours, mishaps and constant challenges and we also like to point those out. After all, life is a journey, a constant learning process. Stories in our second blog Abgetaucht are particularly reflecting on those topics. After all, life is a journey, a constant learning process. With lots of love and devotion, we are painting an even more personal picture of the weird and wonderful world we are living in (German only).
Happy news! Finally, there is another page under photography online: Art by nature features mainly underwater pictures, but not exclusively. New photo gallery Beauty lies in the details. I love looking for particular combinations and patterns formed by colours, textures, and shapes. Nature is an endless provider of subjects without […]Read More

In short: Me and my cameras have not always lived in perfect harmony. I love diving and find it very relaxing. Why add another activity on top? After initial struggles and a longer break, I started with a new mind-set. Not that there were no more frustrations all of the […]Read More
The Giant Mountains (Riesengebirge) brought up vague childhood memories of a mountain spirit called Rübezahl and they definitely cast their spell on us. We didn’t meet Rübezahl – or at least we didn’t recognise him – but we are enchanted by the beautiful mountain panorama with alpine vegetation around the […]Read More
An old neighbourhood under new light: Sustainable fashion, barbers and second hand clothes I love Berlin! It was a huge adventure to move to the capital in 2004, for many years the city felt like an ever changing playground, so it was hard to empty my small inner city apartment […]Read More
Drenthe is a province of the Netherlands. Located in the northeastern part of the country it is often overlooked – at least by Germans on our race to the Western coast. I was lucky enough to get myself a Grunn (Groninger) who moved to Drenthe as a teenager. Since my […]Read More
My first visit to a Frisian island since I was a kid (see affinity to islands and sea in German here). After more than a month of being land-locked in the Netherlands and Germany, we were very much looking forward to a short visit out at sea. Deep-sea island Before […]Read More
European elections are coming up and we’d like to have Juicy Media reminding us of the last parliamentary term as they did for the Australian government: 2019 Election We discovered Juicy Media just a couple of months ago and it turned directly into our favourite news programme. Keep in mind […]Read More
Just because it is collected doesn’t mean it will get recycled. How shifting the meaning of recycling is blinding us to see the painful truth about our part in plastic pollution: Plastic rubbish travels the world already before it enters the oceans. Rubbish collection and neglection I’ve been living in […]Read More
