Martin Vavrek

Supporting Photographer

Born in Vranov, Slovakia A land-locked country I spent my childhood and early adult years dreaming of and watching documentaries of Ocean Exploration. Upon arriving in Australia in 2000, I immediately put these dreams into reality by completing my Open Water Certificate, and then going on to do many more higher awards Culminating in my Dive Master Certificate, Instructors Certificate and Speciality Instructors Certificate. I am currently working at Plunge Diving in Sydney as an Instructor. Driven by adventure, I have not only dived in many locations around Australia and some remote locations including Micronesia and Antarctica, I am also a keen Snow skier and Photographer. I find Photography, both still and video, the ultimate way of showing and sharing my experiences with Family and friends. After Travelling to Antarctica last year my passion for the area only increased and I look forward to becoming a member of the Elysium Team and contributing to the making of a documentary. It will be personal journey from watching to being involved in documentaries the culmination of a DREAM!
