The photographer-team

Maren Derlien (Germany)

After the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Maren Derlien found her way into professional photography and local journalism. In addition to her career in high-performance sports (until the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing), the now 48-year-old worked as a freelance journalist for the Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung for several years with the range of local and regional reporting. In the following years, Maren Derlien continued to work as a freelance journalist in addition to her jobs at the city sports association in Düsseldorf and as a sports teacher at a primary school in Waltrop and is working in public relations at her club, RC Germania Düsseldorf. As an athlete, the native of Hamburg can look back on a long list of successes – with numerous titles and medals at national and world championships (all age groups and open class) through to participation in the Olympic Games twice (2004 5th in the pair; 2008 4th in the pair  and 7th in the eight). She has been part of the photography team at since the portal was founded – since mid-2018, her international radius – including with her own orders – has become increasingly larger. Since then she also write articles for RUDERSPORT, the official magazine of the German Rowing Association.

Detlev Seyb (Germany)

Detlev Seyb took his first steps in rowing at a club in his hometown Waltrop/Germany in 1975. As he began to cover rowing in the mid-80s, he thought that the fascinating sport of rowing wasn’t receiving enough attention and publicity in his region. The now 58-year-old picked up a camera and a pen while still at school and wrote his first articles for the Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung (WAZ). Parallel  to his freelance work at WAZ, he also wrote articles for the official magazine of the German Rowing Association – RUDERSPORT. After the first international event as a journalist at the 1990 World Rowing Championships in Tasmania, many more followed: also at Junior World Championships, U23 World Championships, World Cups and in the mid-90s as a member of the rowing band The Vikings, composing  the official anthems for the 1998 World Cup in Cologne and the 2001 Junior World Cup in Duisburg – and the World Bobsleigh Champs in Altenberg, Germany (2000): in spring 2008 he captured the Bobsleigh World Championships in Altenberg for the organizer in pictures. Since 1994 Detlev Seyb was working for the Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung as an editor – so he was actice in  many other sports of regional reportings.

After 17 years at WAZ (as a freelancer and editor), Detlev Seyb founded the rowing internet portal and is presenting his extensive rowing archive there since May 2009, which continues to grow with every event. In the summer of 2024, Detlev Seyb will be photographer at the Olympic Games in Paris/France – after Barcelona, ​​Athens, Beijing, London, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo now for the seventh time in total and for the fifth time for Worldrowing, working for them since 2002.
