Melanie & David Benz
Olympus Visionary

Adventurer and couple. Addicted to diving and traveling the two of them are cruising the blue planet. Whether behind or in front of the camera, their element is water. „Remote countries and the depths of the oceans - it is the fascination of the unknown which captivates and boosts us.“

As photographers and editors they got to know most of the seven seas and felt into love with them. From Papua New Guinea to Raja Ampat, from Indonesia through the Philippines to the sunny Caribbean the couple is visiting the most beautiful dive sites on our blue planet. Thereby they photographed whale-sharks in the Atlantic and the North Pacific, dived with sharks and dolphins at the wrecks of the South Pacific and portrayed manta rays in the colorful coral gardens of Indonesia. Finally they found enchanting mermaids and sirens in the mystical underwater worlds of the Mexican Cenotes.

Olympus Visionary

I started in 1996 with sports photography (football, tennis, ice hockey, Formula 1 ...) and then I concentrated more and more on the concert and people photography until I arrived at the advertising and reportage photography, which is now in photography my main focus is.

In 2004 I started to work as a cameraman and production assistant in the production of a documentary film, which then premiered at the 2005 Berlinale.
As a result, I worked as a producer at a major film production company for 3.5 years, producing larger commercial film productions until I started my own small film production.

Since 2018 I am now also Olympus Visionary, because the cameras have convinced me the most for my way of film and photo production.
