Norbert Probst: was born in 1951. In 1970 he discovered SLR Cameras as a fascinating tool. In 1977 he fulfilled an old dream of his when he started scuba diving. Three years later he also took his camera into the sea and underwater photography became his passion. Early Europe-wide successes in competitions, stunning photographic slideshows and the collaboration with the first underwater image Archive IKAN in Frankfurt/M. paved his way into professional photography.

In 1982 his first travel report was published, his first cover picture was printed in 1983. One year later, the editorial work for the magazine "Team Tauchen" began. 1988 he started a close cooperation with UWF Magazine (underwater photography). UWF became "Unterwasser" ("underwater") in 1995, a high quality monthly special interest magazine for scuba and skin divers  in german language.

Until today, Norbert works mostly as an permanent, yet independent editor for Europes largest diving magazines "unterwasser" and "Tauchen". In his function as editor, he creates text- and image-reports all around diving and the fascinating underwater world. Together with Johanna Beloch, wife, diving partner and UW model, there is an experienced and well-practised team travelling around the world of diving.

Beside the jounalistic work Norbert Probst overtakes photographic assignments for industry and advertising. The distribution of the extensive underwater-image photo library occurs over a worldwide net of picture agencies.
