The photographer

Detlev Seyb (Germany)

I took my first steps in rowing at a club in my hometown Waltrop/Germany in 1975. As I began to cover rowing in the mid-80s – I thought that the fascinating sport of rowing wasn’t receiving enough attention and publicity in my region – I found my way into journalism. I worked as a freelancer first (text and photo; also for RUDERSPORT and FISA) and later, in 1994, became an editor at the German daily paper, Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung.

My first international rowing trip took me to Tasmania in 1990, the World Champs in Australia. A lot of international rowing events (World-Cups, Junior, U23 and Senior Champs) followed – 2008, for example, I went to the Olympic Games in Beijing as an official FISA photographer.

I have been taking photos of other sports as well. For example, I covered the World Bobsleigh Champs in Altenberg/Germany as official photographer for the organizing committee in 2008. In May 2009 I started a new step in my working life and launched the internet-portal Since 2009 I have been covering international events also as an official photographer of the Italian Rowing Federation.
