Underwater Portrait Photographer

Steffen Binke

Steffen is Binke Photographic Art’s technical director and photographic choreographer. Steffen has a rich and varied background. After an abrupt end of his career as a professional football player in Germany, Steffen changed course and began working underwater, teaching people to dive and helping more than 1800 scuba divers achieve their certification. Steffen's underwater photography started during this time. Then, as he began to discover the incredible diversity of mood and atmosphere that could be achieved just by different lighting and adjusting a few camera settings, his transition into professional underwater portraiture began. But Steffen does more than take underwater portraits. He choreographs the entire photoshoot. He develops the brief with his clients/ photography subjects. He coaches them to perform under the water effortlessly and with grace, poise and elegance. And on the day, they become both artist and subject, inspired to dance underwater and engage in the most breathtaking and incredible poses. When he’s not directing and undertaking photoshoots, Steffen can be found down at the local football fields, mentoring young football players to be the best they can be — and enjoying life with his family.
