Andy retired from GE in 2016 after 26 years with the Company, spending the majority of his time at GE Research and 7 years with GE Healthcare. He chose to retire early so that he could spend more time pursuing his passions of travel, scuba diving and photography.

Andy has always been interested in photography, but it wasn’t until 2011 when he had the opportunity to borrow an underwater camera that he started to take his photography more seriously and took a number of underwater photography workshops. Since then, he has taken all forms of photography more seriously but most enjoys underwater photography, aerial photography with his drone and land-based wildlife photography.

In pursuit of his images, Andy has traveled to the far reaches of our planet including Indonesia, Palau, the Solomon Islands, Israel, Egypt, Australia, Tonga, Iceland, Greenland, the Philippines, the Galapagos Islands, Mexico and all over the Caribbean. Andy has won several photography competitions and his images have been published in magazines worldwide. He currently shoots with a Nikon D850 in a Nauticam housing with a pair of Retra Pro flashes. His work can be found online at as well as @andydeitschphotography on Facebook.
