I have a passion for the ocean, for animals, for beauty and nature. Used to be a Diving Instructor, now I only dive for pleasure. I´m also a cave diver, and an artist. So now I´m combining this to create unique underwater images.

Because beyond the issue of our survival is the issue of how we experience our life and how we celebrate it. And our experience of life is intrinsically linked to how we communicate and "connect" with everything around us, especially with all life around us. In my case, it’s the ocean and their living creature that makes me want to celebrate. So my photography is intended to be a celebration of marine life and the underwater world.

I use a Canon 5D Mark II with an aquatica housing.
