UWP:: RAFAEL FERNANDEZ CABALLERO

























RAFAEL FERNANDEZ CABALLERO 

A year ago I finished my studies in energy and industrial organization engineering and I got the diving instructor 2 stars CMAS.

All my life has been linked to the sea. Since I was a child I have been lucky enough to be in contact with both underwater photography and scuba diving, accompanying my father (underwater photographer as well) to incredible places all over the world.

When I was 7 years old, I started to dive and as soon as I could I got my Open water certificate, since then I have not stopped diving. With 16 years old I took my first camera underwater and that changed my way of seeing the marine world and taught me to look always for the beauty anywhere.

Nowadays I work professionally in underwater photography. I am the current World and European champion of underwater photography and I have been lucky enough to win numerous national and international awards. I am also photo ambassador of Aqualung, Isotta Housings and of different diving magazines, as well as companies such as BlueForce. 

I dedicate much of time to travel for work and to teach my knowledge doing workshops and photography courses all over the world.

My goal is not only to capture emotive moments, but to show the world the beauty of the unknown marine world and to raise awareness of the need to protect it.

Equipment:
Nikon d850 with Isotta Housing
