Author, explorer and photographer with a curious mind and a soft spot for life, fish, universe and everything. Josef travelled the world for business and pleasure.
"The life is short and time flies. Research and planning are indispensable to get the most out of my trips."

Josef is an acknowledged underwater, nature and drone photographer.
"Since I was a little boy, I dreamt of becoming an adventurer shooting movies in the wilderness of Africa and the depth of the ocean. Hitchhiking did not cut it, so I borrowed a camera and took it under water."

After creating half a dozen of books from trips for his friends and family, he wrote and published GALÁPAGOS, a fantastically received travel guide to the archipelago.

"A picture is worth a thousand words, but I wanted to capture all the stories that make the Galapagos what it is now – one of this planet's most extraordinary places – in the best book ever written on the subject.”

Although Josef likes exploring on his own, he gets the most joy from travel with friends. "Sharing the fun and sometimes hairy stories is pure bliss. I rejoice to bring together a group of fellow travellers, chip in with everything I know about a place and perhaps help them to take the best pictures they can."


It is a delight to have Josef aboard as Scuba Travel's Expedition Leader for our diving trips and also island cruises to the Galapagos.
