He has been an enthusiast photographer since he was 15 years old, but since 2010 when he started with underwater photography and a more professional approach.

“Every since I was a kid, as far back as I can remember, I was attracted to the sea. I dreamt about what lies beneath the waves. I imagined what would it looked like if suddenly all the water would disappear for a while, but all the animals and living creatures remained at the same place they were, so I could then take a walk inside the ocean and see them all, suspended for a moment in time and space.

I still have that same dream, and I am very grateful that now I am able to live it every time I go down to the sea. I see my pictures, and realize they are the result of that childhood dream…beautiful and incredible marine life suspended in their natural environment and capture in a brief moment of time.”
