UWP: PATRICK GARCIA

































Patrick Garcia
I love the sea and in particular the Mediterranean Sea.
I live in Toulouse, South West of the France.
I started diving in 1992. Professional and family life did not allow me to continue.
Photography has always fascinated me. I've naturally been attracted underwater photography when my children have started scuba diving on 2005.
My first experiences on a Sony P120 gave me the virus.  The underwater photo sites are a source of inspiration. From amateurs to professionals, I enjoyed their desire to share their knowledge.
For fun, I participated of contests that allowed me to learn many things. I  developed my creativity by looking at the photos of others.
Three years ago, I invested in a new equipment (canon G11+Recsea Housing) to go a little further.
I love the macro because one has the impression of being a privileged spectator of a moment of life. Capture this moment provides an unforgettable sensations. 
Most of my photos are realized during snorkelling. Apnea allows a real feeling of freedom and symbiosis with environment.
