Claude Ruff is a computer scientist, but began photography in 1984 and has been diving since 1998. His first underwater experiences with a camera were in Hurghada, Egypt, when he rented a Nikonos V. After using both a Nikon F70 and F100 for a few years, Claude went digital and upgraded to a Nikon D200 in 2006 and Nikon D300 in 2008, and currently teaches underwater photography as a member of the French Diving Federation (FFESSM). His website, Aquatilia, won the 'Prix du site Web Artistique' at the 2006 Antibes World Festival of Underwater Pictures (Festival Mondial de l'Image Sous Marine).
