About Andre

I’m Andre. I am from Ambon, Maluku. Indonesia. During the weekdays I am in the office, but I will find myself mostly in the water during the weekend or whenever I got a freetime. Simply the perk of living so near the ocean. I started to dive just about 4 years ago. And it took me another two years to get into underwater photography.  I mostly took macro pictures. It was just started as an interest, I was amazed of seeing those little tiny creatures. And so, things just starts to roll from there. I did join an underwater photography event held here in Ambon won the first place for Open Macro category and in Manado won the third place for open macro category . And that’s simply beginner’s luck I guess. Since I only had the opportunity of joining that one competition. Would love to join more, though.
