Konstantin Killer - underwater photographer

Meet him at boot 2017

Konstantin started out specialising in landscape photography in the
1980s. At that time – during those “analogue times” – he spent days in
his darkroom meticulously developing black and white film.

Today, this
“German master of underwater photography 2014” regularly finds himself
underwater with his Nikon D800 in SEACAM housing and an army of slave

Konstantin started underwater model photography in the pool some years
ago, initially regarding it as individual training and later as project
work during the winter. This swiftly translated into pure passion for
him, with the special exposures, unique ideas, complex planning, as
well as the challenges of using photographic equipment underwater, and
communicating with his team and, of course, the models while

Yet, despite the elaborate preparation needed and complex
scene construction, Konstantin always manages to make every photograph
look fun and engaging while positioning his well-crafted ideas
perfectly in the frame.

Konstantin's motto is: “Let only your imagination set the limits of what is possible.

At the forefront of his agenda is Konstantin's goal of bringing the
craft of underwater model photography to the next level. In 2014, he
launched Model Aquagraphy Pixel 1, a workshop for underwater
photographers and models – the first of its kind in the German-speaking
world. In 2015 and 2016, more of such events followed.

Since 2013, Konstantin has been organising regular underwater
photography training for photographers and models, mermaid-themed
events, software training, photographic expeditions and personal
training sessions.

At boot 2017:

Why do I take underwater photographs? Why am I holding an exhibition of my photographs at boot 2017?
"Colourful corals, beautiful fish, captivating nudibranch and many
other beautiful scenes can be photographed underwater. However, it
takes a skilled photographer to be able to capture that special fish
within that unique moment that will distinguish the photograph from the
thousands of possible images underwater. All these elements combine to
make the craft of underwater photography special.

I am passionate about taking underwater photographs, and strive to
share this wonderful experience with my fellow human beings. I look
forward to meeting you and chatting with you about underwater
photography at the Taucher.Net booth 3 / F90 at boot 2017.
