B&E Underwater Photography

Bruno Van Saen & Els Van Den Borre got married in 1996. A few years later, in November 2004 to be exact, they both discovered the beauty of the underwater world. After two attempts in a swimming pool, they finally try for the first time a real Scuba dive in the open sea. The start of a great story...

Bruno and Els participate in 2009 in their first underwater photography contest. At the ceremony, they are both awarded. A few weeks later, Bruno and Els become third in their first international underwater photography competition. A year later they can re-confirm, and they both belong again to the lucky winners. Meanwhile, Bruno and Els achieved incredible results in national- and international UW photo competitions.

Today, they already won three times on the UW Worldfestival or Festival Mondial de l'Image Sous-Marine.
