|Aqua Foto, Tony Holm started up in 1974. We are busy with stillpictures and filming under water taking natural history pictures. Our still pictures are sold by Azote - the green image agency.
The Swedish Film Institute have partly financed most of our films. Sveriges Television (Swedish public service TV) have broadcasted all the films made before "Sid the Pike" and partly financed most of them. WWF the Swedish Arts Grants Committee and Film i Halland have supported us as well.
Ms Barbro Johansson has participated as a diver, still-picture photographer and field-assistant since 1976.
In the end of the 70-ties we started to design an underwater-housing for the French Super 16 camera Aaton 7. The shape of that camera makes it perfect for underwater filming. We also got in touch with Mr François Laurent in Switzerland who has designed the THALACETOR underwater optics.
With help from Hedén Engineering AB, Bim AB, Poseidon Industri AB and CMC Sweden AB and some other contributions the second housing was ready.
During our work with TRITON Mr Laurent developed a brand new underwater-correktor - the greatest breakthrough in uw-optics since the middle of the fifties. Mr Laurent helpt us to design the front and the wiew-finder to TRITON. The front is an underwater-corrector, a 0.7x wide-angle lens and it has double security against leakage.
We started to use TRITON in our production in 1995, but now we are filming with a Panasonic POV in HD and a Lumix DMC-GH4 in a Nauticam housing. We use Atomos Shogun as well.
Tony Holm has shot the underwater pictures in the shortfilm "WAY OF THE FLOUNDER" by Johannes Stjärne Nilsson och Ola Simonsson. The film won "PRIX FICTION" 2005 in Festival Mondial de l´image Sous-Marine" in Marseille.
