Christian Petron

Christian Petron, born 1944, spent his youth on the shores of Lake Annecy. Here he discovered his passion for diving and underwater photography. Already while he was a mine diver in the French Navy, he worked for the company Comex as a specialist for underwater filming in deep-sea submarines. These skills made him a specialist for several expeditions to the Titanic. From 1996 to 1998 he shot four 52-minute documentaries about the exploration of the wreck of the TITANIC. In 2002, his extensive experience in underwater shooting led to a close cooperation with Hollywood's director James Cameron, who made use of Christian Petron's know-how in his documentary "Ghosts of the Abyss".
