Helmut Theiss
HELMUT THEISS is an Transylvanian Saxon born 1967 in a small town called Heltau in Transylvania, Romania, living since 1988, after an adventurous escape through the ,"Iron Curtain”, in Germany. He discovered his passion for scuba diving at 1998 by completing the PADI training up to Divemaster, together with his wife Hedda. He work in the automobile industry ( Mercedes-Benz, near Stuttgart) – so that the few hours a year, during vacation is the only time he spend under water with his camera. They are both underwater critter fans. Therefore they have chosen South East Asia as theirs favorite vacation destination. Each vacation they spend two or three weeks in Thailand, Indonesia or Philippines, depending on the season. Helmut bought his first underwater camera because he wanted to bring the fascinating underwater world home to his family and friends. It was not real photography, just some snapshots with a Sea & Sea MX 10. In 2004 he bought his first digital compact camera. He wanted to improve his photos step by step. He changed his equipment quite often because small motives are a challenge for some cameras. Helmut photographs with a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV in Sea&Sea housing using Sea&Sea YS D2 strobes. RETRA snoot and SagaDive and AOI UCL900 wet lenses.
