André is best known for his unique style of shooting creative concepts underwater with freedivers/ divers as the subjects, interacting with marine wildlife and exploring the underwater environment. He specializes in shooting while freediving (on breath hold), allowing closer, less invasive encounters and one-of-a-kind interactions with sharks, rays, fish, turtles, dolphins and other marine animals.

This enables him to easily work in the water for hours, following animals and functioning at the highest level in physically demanding situations doing whatever it takes to get the shot. Andre's unique, multitalented skillset includes him being as talented in front of the camera as he is behind. On screen underwater talent, underwater modeling or underwater stunts are a few things Andre uses his unique comfort underwater and freediving skills to be proficient in these roles.
