Reef Patrol's Passion

This is what Reef Patrol does.

film

Reef Patrol creates creative media content for all nature and ocean related topics, both above and below the ocean.

photography

Sometimes all that is needed is just the right picture at the right time.

animation

For subjects that cannot be caught on film or photo, animation can be useful.

research & education

It is important to be both familiar with, and involved in current ocean research, education, and preservations topics.

Why Reef Patrol ?

Reef Patrol creates creative media content for all nature and ocean related topics. "Reef Patrol" is the name we gave to our Shark Shortfilm (you can also see it in the portfolio below). This is where it all began. It seemed to be a cool name for a project we were planning to start. The title pretty much says what it is all about - taking care of the reefs of our world. Though we are no researchers, scientists or biologists, we feel an obligation to contribute to this community, to our oceans, to our earth, to nature. We want to help preserve the wonderful underwater world of our planet. So our way of contributing, is to spread its beauty through filming and photography and to share with others. This is a non-profit webpage - purely personal passion -, but feel free to contact us anytime, if you have any questions or projects to which we may be able to contribute.

Reef Patrol is both a passion and a hobby of ours, as is filming and photography in general. In addition, diving has also become a large part of our everyday life, which is how Reef Patrol came into existence. Reef Patrol is not only about the reefs of our planet, it is also about nature and everything that comes with it.
Our team has completed different dive courses such as: - BSAC Sports Diver course - BSAC Dive Leader course (WIP) - BSAC Course Accelerated Decompression Procedures (WIP) - BSAC Automated External Defibrillator - Oxygen Administration - Nitrox - Compressor Operation - Drysuit Diving
Filming will always be one of our favourite ways of showing people the wonders of our earth. Photography can also achieve this, but films cannot be manipulated as easily as during post production of still photographs. So people will basically believe what they see. Also an additional attraction of film is the associated music. If the right music is chosen to suit the emotions of the film, one can really attract the attention of the viewer.
Animation is always useful to express things that either cannot be filmed, or that would be unclear to the viewer. It can be also used as an eye-catcher or just as a simple introduction to a film. There are some short animation films in progress, stay tuned for the release dates.
Our aims are to contribute as much creative content as possible to help open people´s eyes, and to make our knowledge available for anyone who might wish to use our help. In addition, we will continue to learn as much as possible about new research and preservation topics. We are always happy to meet people from this field and connect with them, too.
