Phil Simha and the photography



Originally from Greece, Phil Simha discovered the diving world in his early childhood and immediately fell in love.
At the beginning of his professional career, he worked in outdoor sports and specialized more specifically in vertical activities to become one of the pioneers in bungee jumping. Later on he worked as a guide in the Himalayas and as a diving instructor. It was not until the late 1990s that he decided to entirely dedicate himself to the diving world.

Renowned writer, Phil Simha is known for his contributions to the magazine “Plongeurs International” with his articles on diving technique and underwater image.  He also collaborates with various European magazines such as “Unterwasser”, “Buceadores” or “Apnea”. In 2011, he co-wrote the book "Zoom on Scuba Diving" with Pascal Baril.

Today Phil Simha likes to spend his time traveling, writing, photographing and diving. Through the organization of photo workshops, he seeks to share his experience and push people to improve this underwater discipline!
