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.

Both blogs

„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. 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).

My long way to underwater photography

In short: I and my cameras have not always lived in perfect harmony. I love diving and find it very relaxing. Why add another activity on top? Initial struggles were followed by a longer break until I started with a new mindset. It’s not that there were no more frustrations […]

Out of sight, out of mind: Plastic waste isn’t recycled (yet)

Just because plastic waste 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 […]
