Gerald-Rambert-web1Born in September 1979, Gerald grew up in the northern region of the island of Mauritius. Always fascinated by fish and photography, he was from the earliest age an enthusiastic aquarium owner and free diver before training to become a scuba instructor in 2001. He bought his first compact camera with its underwater casing, second hand, from a good friend and renowned underwater photographer, Mathieu Meur. Things have gone from there really. He began to study shots taken by professional photographers and worked that camera to the bone. Eventually he decided to move on the slr side and bought a Nikon D70 and a seacam housing, also got his hand on a Nikonos V and a Nikon F100, as well in seacam housing. In 2009 his pictures were among the 10 best in the CMAS world championship. He also shot a few front covers for divers magazines, wrote many articles, that gave him the opportunity to cover some diving destinations like Philippines, Turkey, Rodrigues, Komodo and more… Today, Gerald is the part owner of Sundivers ltd, on the west part of the island of Mauritius, where he teaches underwater photography all year around and dives nearly everyday.
