Magnus underwater obsession started with a whispering broken voice in the family TV-set. Jaques-Yves Cousteau came straight through the screen with his boyish curiosity and “let’s go and have a look” message. He was very young and he got very hooked. "Cousteau was such a great inspiration to me and just like mother nature, he always brought some sort of rugged unsentimental truth to me. That type of inspiration makes me just plain happy."

Magnus is the CEO of Exposure Underwater and his knowledge and expertise on what it takes to create world class underwater photography is setting a high standard for our customers. Magnus has been a professional photographer since 20 years now and earned his share of prices and fame. If you ask him he is most proud of his awards in Wildlife Photographer of the Year and the fact that he was awarded the 2011 European Wildlife Photographer of the year for underwater images.
