Atle Ove Martinussen - Atle is a historian from Norway and has been involved in documentary photographing and video for more than 35 years. He has started diving in 2003 and it is clear that this comprehensive interest in photographing and video was perfect also under water.

As a historian, Atle is very interested in underwater cultural heritage and marine archaeology. In his opinion this part of our cultural should have much more attention. Martinussen made video documentation in the field of marine archeology and some of them has been shown by Norwegian national broadcasters. In 2014 scenes from one of his videos were used in the French/German film production «Die Frauen Der Wikinger». His enthusiasm for the beauty of the underwater world became more visible after he has put on display several exhibitions of his photos in various galleries. You are most welcome to see  beauty of the underwater world through his lens and indulge into an amazing and extraordinary journey with Atle. He hopes his photos and videos make the abyss more available to others and his documentary work as well as involvement in the marine life projects around the world make a mark and a contribution to the safeguarding and caring for our fragile environment.
