Christine Gstöttner is known in the underwater world for two things. Photography and sharks.

She started diving in the nineties and immediately also with underwater photography. Since the beginning she specialized in sharks and provides her photos and work voluntarily and for free for the international NGO Sharkproject.

After studying at the Vienna University of Economics and Business she started her business and her diving career up to a IDC Staff Instructor running a 5-Star IDC Center. Three years later she opened up her travel agency Fish & Trips which is today one of very few high quality tour-operators in Austria specialized in diving.

Today Christine works during her journeys as an underwater and wildlife photographer and publishes a lot of articles, stories and pictures. You can find her work basically in german speaking magazines but pictures are sold in well known stock agencies all over the world.
